Friday 12 Mar 2010: Service Ó la russe
The current style of serving each guest individually at banquets is known as "service Ó la russe". Before this style was introduced in the early 19th century in France (supposedly by Prince Kurakin, a Russian diplomat), the traditional style was "service Ó la franšaise", which involved putting all dishes on the table at once and guests serving themselves.
