One more tip on plates. Americans (more than other nationalities) tend to over-serve themselves at buffets. So, don’t get a 12" round plate. Get an elegant looking 10" by 12" plate, or a 8" by 12" plate — -an oval. Why? Because it’s big enough for standard sized portions of a main, a side, a bread or salad, but if you pile on food, you quickly run out of room and it’ll be unstable. If people want more at a buffet, they can go back for seconds, but at least your whole party will be served once without running out of food.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
