Aramark's professional chefs feeding the Olympic athletes don't mess around—they cook in batches of 500 servings, like this recipe, and use metric weights and measures for universal accuracy.

5.9 Kg onions (diced)
22.7 Kg mushrooms (sliced)
9.46 Liters Madeira wine (or dry red wine)

56.75 Kg cooked chicken (dried or strips)

Method of Preparation:
