Fine porcelain tableware is used for this occasion. The bread plates will be silver plates. Each diner will use four plates.
- 2 flat, one deep and one for dessert will depend on the selected menu. You will also have your cup of consommé and your cup for coffee or tea.
- If a consommé is served, we must place a piece of paper or tablecloth on the flat plate to avoid unnecessary noise.
- NOTE: If we serve salads this dish will be placed on the left side of the diner’s main dish.
