On TESDA Training: The Sequence of Fine Dining (A la Carte)

Theories about Fining Dining Service may have been too bloody to learn for the first timer like me. But these adversities may be surpassed one learn the actual demo. But it’s good to know that we only have to present Table Service (A La Carte) during the assessment time. With just a little time left for me to actually learn the basics, good thing that our mentor is patiently teaching us.

  7. Taking Wine Order
  8. Completing Table Setup
  9. Presenting and Serving White Wine
  10. Cleaning of Appertit Glass
  11. Serving Appetizers
  12. Soup
  13. Clearing Soiled Dishes
  14. Presenting/Serving of Red Wine Glass
  15. Serving the Main Course and Side Salad
