Course details

Banquets are a tradition that date back to medieval times. The word ‘banquet’ is actually an old French word, meaning small bench, and it comes from the idea of a group of people sitting around the same table for a meal.

But over time, banquets have taken on an additional connotation - extravagant, large-scale, celebratory feasts. In modern times, banquets are a staple of event catering: weddings, graduations, even conferences. They require an additional level of knowledge and service to be prepared and managed, in order to meet guests’ high expectations.

So in this Banqueting service online course led by Thomas Boucourt, we’ll go through the theory and practice you need to deliver an excellent banquet service: everything from the timeline sequence for banqueting service setup; to seating and greeting; to serving, cleanup, and pack down.
