The Art Of The All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet

So my buddy, Tim, loves buffets. MCL. Old Country. Golden Corral. China Buffet. And the list could go on and on and on. He'll do all-nighters with Jr. High guys where they start off the night with a classic all-you-can-eat buffet. I wish he's post about which he restaurant is the best, but that's another story.

Anywho...I found this article: Mastering the Art of the All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet. It's outstanding! I thought of all the people out there that are wanting to NOT cook after a season of cooking/making turkeys, hams, stuffing, casseroles, cranberries, etc, but still want to eat and eat and eat...this is the article for you.

Here is a teaser. Funny stuff and Happy eating!

The Fourth Plate is almost always a good idea before you do it and a bad idea afterwards. It’s the helping after the helping after. It’s the Greatest Hits Plate, a star-studded collection featuring the most popular items from Plate 1, 2, and 3, coming together for the reunion tour, the last hurrah, the final dance at the dinner table.

The Fourth Plate is also a famous mark of a Buffet Amateur, because it can be the sign of someone who realizes that Plate 2 was the best plate and they really just want more of Plate 2. For years, I scarfed down The Fourth Plate at the Indian buffet near my college. Buttery, pillowy-soft naans piled high, thick and creamy Butter Chicken, and spicy, simmering lamb in a hearty broth. It was just too much. I caved in every time and walked away with a curry-busting gut and a samosa hangover.
