Buffets

Buffet

At formal 'wedding-style' buffets, guests get called up table-by-table; you should go to get your food promptly when requested, as guests who are slow off the mark can hold up the conveyor belt.

At parties with a buffet, timing is less crucial, but make sure you don't end up being the last one chewing. Food may be eaten standing up, so choose a fork-friendly selection that requires little or no cutting. Plates shouldn't be overloaded - it's better to go back for seconds than look like you haven't eaten for a week.
