    Spekko tips for caterers
    You can make this dish days in advance and freeze it. Defrost on the day of service and gently heat through. To defrost, place the casserole in a preheated oven at
    180°C, for 30 minutes. Add the peas after defrosting.
    To make your buffet serve the amount of people you are catering for, make sure you have someone dishing up serving portions. Self-service may have people take too much in one go.
    Cook your rice on the day of the event.
