1001 Kitchen Tips #65 - Quick way to heat your plates before you plate up - especially if you have full ovens

They say you should learn at least one thing from everyone you meet. Well this tip is one I picked up last week and used again tonight (69 covers down, 117 tomorrow & meagre 37 Sunday).

HEAT YOUR STACK OF PLATES IN THE MICROWAVE!


Yes. 3 - 4 mins on high power. Easy when you know how.

There is an aga accross the courtyard in the Coach House at Broad Marston Manor, but a stack of plates in the microwave in the main kitchen though seemed much easier than lugging plates between kitchens (had ovens full of food funnily enough). And it so works - without burning the waiting staff. Now is that a good thing or bad?
