No 449: the Family Style Meal

Friday, March 26, 2010

I love the idea of serving a family style meal, rather than more formal Russian or French service (Russian service requires that dishes be plated in the kitchen and are served by a single waiter, while French service demands that food be prepared and plated table-side and requires many more waiters). I just can't imagine having all those people milling around, and frankly, nothing makes for a more lively dinner party than, "Oh, pass those roasted potatoes!"
