Food Accompaniment

Welcome to today’s class!!

We are thrilled to have you in our class!!

In today’s Catering Craft’s class, we will be learning about Food Accompaniment

Food Accompaniments

Every dish has its own accompaniment of food and a food item is incomplete without it. We have people who cannot eat beans without bread, while there are others who only eat bread with coca cola. Think of food accompaniment as that combination you must add to your meal before eating. 

What is Food Accompaniment?

Food accompaniment may be an integral part of the dish or served separately. In a restaurant, the waiter must have a sound knowledge of the accompaniments to help him/her serve the food correctly.

Before serving the dish, the appropriate food accompaniments must be placed on the table or served on the plate.

In general, for the meat dish which is served as the main course, the accompanying sauce, roast gravy, and other standard accompanying sauce are served after serving the meat, either on the meat or on the sides according to the preference of the guest.

However, the waiters should follow the procedures practiced in their place of work.
