I learned a few things running refreshments for the Toastmasters Division D Spring Contest April 12, 2018.
- Cloth tablecloths not only dress up the serving tables and reduce the noise of clinking dishes, they make cleanup go much faster. You don't have to wipe down the tables - just roll up the tablecloths to be laundered later.
- Scissors-style salad tongs speed up service a lot. The classic fork-and-spoon combination is fine when you're eating at leisure but when there's a line of people, every time someone sets down a plate to pick up two utensils adds more time to everyone else's wait.
- Caesar Salad is much, much more popular than kale salad. Perhaps this should not have been a surprise but I went through two Caesars, while the kale was barely picked over. It was also a good idea to have an "undressed" option for our no-carb customers!
