    Funny - I do most of the cooking in our house but Mrs. B has taken charge of the barbecuing for the last two weekends.

    As we had a lot of people staying last weekend, she even did the Sunday morning breakfast sausages and bacon on it, which worked superbly.

    That looks fabulous, albeit a bit of a child-sized portion for my liking!

    Lol, thanks! The fillet steak (Welsh Black beef) and pâté was very rich, so you didn't need much to fill you.

    Do bear in mind too, that the beef was preceded by some bruschetta, and other examples of Italian 'tapas'/little bites (served with the aperitifs), including a starter course of spinach and ricotta crespelle, which was quite filling. Plus, I had to make room for the Tiramisu afterwards!

    Also, unlike others, I *HATE* having my plate piled full of food, so that it just looks like a mountain of mush/stodge. It really puts me off.

    Instead, I like to see what I'm eating (all elements of it), and only put on my plate what I think I'll finish. Therefore, large plates facilitate that, so you can space things out nicely. It also aids nice presentation, which for me is crucial

    If I want more food, I can have it, *if* I feel like it. The Italian way of doing things, during a meal, is always to put different types of veg into individual serving bowls, so folk can help themselves, rather than being given one big plate of stuff, all plied up like school dinners!

    The plate itself or the amount of food on it?
