Recently I went to a wine tasting where there was a huge platter of lamb with no serving spoon. The lamb — which had a succulent red wine sauce — was sliced into small bite-sized pieces and served warm in a caterer's pan. Like not having enough eating utensils, not having the proper serving tools at a party is not okay. Some guests made do with toothpicks or paper plates, but it was a messy struggle to taste the lamb.
If you are going to host a party with a large quantity of food, be sure to have all of the equipment necessary to serve the food appropriately. This is especially important if guests had to purchase a ticket to the event.
Are you familiar with this experience? Have you ever been unable to eat something due to a lack of servingware?
