Re: Help: glosovani (food term)
- Hi Coilin,
I cannot recall ever seeing a term for this method in Czech or
English, but the plate covers you are thinking of are called "domes",
if that is of any help.
Formal dome service sounds like a long drawn-out mass at a cathedral,
though, doesn't it? "... formally served on individual dome covered
plates ..." may convey the idea correctly though.
I always thought the food is put on the plate in the kitchen, though,
with this form of presentation (I've never had the pleasure of
experiencing it myself). If the food is brought out on serving
platters and 'dished out' to individual plates at the table, this is
called Service a la Rousse.
