American Service

English Service

  • The host of the meal plays a very important role in an English table service, and is therefore, called 'host service'. The food is brought to the table by the waiters straight to where the host is seated. The host is either served first, or he divides the food into sizable portions and serves it to the guests (first to the main guest or guest of honor, if there is any.) Also known as butler service.
