ROUNDING OFF THE MEAL
What can be nicer than finishing a lovely meal with a selection of tea and coffee? When I used to run workshops in my kitchen and made tea and coffee for a large group, I learned a trick for fitting 16 cups and saucers on one tray.
STEP ONE Divide the saucers into four stacks of four. STEP TWO Lay four cups sideways on top of each stack, tucking the handles into the next cup so they all slot together and sit on the saucer perfectly. STEP THREE Decant once you have brought the cups to the table.
