Silver service…………is it old hat?

If opting for the formal three course wedding breakfast and plan to serve your guests at tables, think about the variations on this.

Silver service is a traditional method of serving guests over the shoulder although we don’t see it much these days, in fact I can’t remember the last wedding or corporate dinner we did when a client requested this style of service. Saying that we did a three course meal for a remembrance day poppy event for the British legion one year, the average age of the guests was at least 70 so needless to say they opted for silver service.

In my opinion its bit old hat now,  its slow, tedious and cumbersome, but hey, if the client pays ,the client can dictate the way in which there guests are served. Although some guests still enjoy the kudos of being served personally by a waiter.

In recent times see most meals being served plated, pretty much the way we are served today in the majority of hotels, restaurants even foody pubs. The waiter comes oer and delivers the dish in its entirety, maybe with the addition of family served vegetables.
