In mundanity, there are names for different types of meal service.
Russian, French, Buffet, Family-style, etc. I've read of different
styles of service for feasts in the SCA, but I can't recall that I ever
really heard any of them _named_. So, my local group's next feast is
probably going to be the type where you delegate 1 person from each
table to go fetch the serving bowl or tray from the serving hatch.
We've always had enough flunkies, er, lackeys, er, um, volunteers to
fetch & carry before. This is the 1st time we've tried it this way, and
we don't know quite what to call it. Can anyone tell me a good term to
use? Is there a recognizable SCAdian term for this style of service?
When the head cook asked me this question today, I was at a loss. The
only idea I came up with was "cooperative service", but I was just
making it up out of my head. Anyone got any ideas?
Yours, in puzzlement,
Maria from Alderford/Mary Piero Carey
