GLASSWARE

Sherry Glasses
Sherry glasses resemble red wine glasses, only they are a bit smaller and are made to hold fortified wines, like port, or wines with a strong aroma. Sherry has a distinct aroma that gets trapped in these special glasses.

Glass Goblets
Goblets have a shorter stem than wine glasses, but can still be used to hold wine or sherry. They can also be used to hold water or other beverages.

Champagne Glasses
These glasses are usually fluted with a tall and narrow bowl for holding champagne. The small opening helps keep the carbonation inside of the glass longer, so that it keeps the drink from going flat. These glasses are great for holding mimosas and other cocktails as well as champagne.

White Wine Glasses
White wine glasses have a smaller rim than the red. The stemmed glasses keep chilled wines cooler longer, as the person drinking the wine can hold the stem instead of holding the glass.

Cosmopolitan Glasses
Ideal for holding cosmos or other mixed drinks, cosmopolitan glasses resemble a stem less cocktail glass.

Red Wine Glasses
Red wine glasses are designed to have a larger rim so that the person drinking the wine can smell the aroma while sipping the wine. Stem less wine glasses can also be used for red wines, since the wine is served room temperature and will not quickly grow warm in the guest’s hand.

Coffee Glasses
These glass mugs can be used to hold any type of warm or iced beverage, such as coffee, tea or cider. In a bar setting, they are often used to serve Irish coffee, because the glass mug keeps the beverage warm while adding a decorative touch to the drink.

Cordial Glasses
A cordial glass can be used to serve any kind of sweet liqueurs. They can also function as an elegant glass for serving beer samples.

Brandy Snifters

These glasses have a shorter stem than wine glasses and are designed to hold brandy, a spirit that is made from distilled wine and often served after dinner. The glasses are capable of holding much more liquid than should be poured. Fill the glass about a third of the way up so that the brandy can breathe in the glass.

Beverage Glassware

Beverage Glasses
These all-purpose glasses can be used to hold any beverage you wish. They come in various sizes, shapes and capacities to fit your dining room needs.

Water Glasses
Water glasses hold anywhere from 5 to 14 ounces of water. In a pinch, plastic drink ware can be used in lieu of glass, especially when it comes to serving water.

Ice Tea Glasses
Some iced tea glasses resemble regular beverage glasses, while some have stems and resemble wine glass or a goblet. These glasses can be used for iced tea, as well as water or any other beverage.

Juice Glasses
Small juice glasses are great for serving juice at breakfast and brunch. They are smaller than most beverage glasses.

Beer Service

Beer Mugs and Steins
These heavy thick mugs are designed to hold beer without breakage. They have sturdy handles for easier lifting. Beer steins are a special kind of beer mug that originated in German. A beer stein is much like a beer mug, but includes a thumb rest or a lid.

Beer Glasses
Some glasses are specifically designed to hold pints of beer or pilsner and lager beers. Pilsner glasses are flared with the top being wider than the bottom. Pint glasses are perfect for holding water, soda or beers and ciders from the tap.

Liquor, Cocktail and Mixed Drink Service

Hurricane Glasses
These glasses are shaped like the old-fashioned hurricane lamps, and are designed to hold fruity cocktails and other drink concoctions.

Margarita Glasses
Margarita glasses are usually large with a bowl shape, and sometimes have a smaller bowl below the large bowl for a decorative touch. The glass is wide so that the rim can be coated in salt or sugar to accent the drink.

Martini and Cocktail Glasses
For serving martinis or any other cocktail, use a martini glass or cocktail glass. The triangular bowl shape holds martinis, cosmopolitans, manhattans, and other fun cocktails. They are also great for serving champagne.

Rock Glasses
When a customer asks for a mixed drink served on the rocks, reach for a rocks glass. These small tumblers can also be used to serve mixed drinks and liqueur drinks.

Highball Glasses
These tall glasses are perfect for holding larger cocktails and mixed drinks, like whiskey and soda, Long Island iced tea, a mojito or a Bloody Mary. They can also be used as an all-purpose beverage glass.

Old Fashioned Glasses
These glasses are also known as lowball glasses, and can work as rocks glasses. They are great for holding small mixed drinks like their namesake, the Old Fashioned, or any type of liquor served on the rocks.

Collins Glasses
These glasses are designed to hold a Tom resemble highball glasses, but highball glasses are usually shorter and wider.

Types of Silverware utensils image by cherie from Fotolia.com
Silverware is the collective term for the utensils used for eating and serving food. Silverware is so-called because it was formerly made from silver; today, however, stainless steel or plastic is a more likely choice for everything but the "Sunday best." You might find silverware referred to as flatware or tableware. Knowing about the types of silverware and their uses can help you present a professional image when planning business functions and formal dinners.
Other People Are Reading * Types of Glassware & Their Uses * Flatware Uses
Silverware Etiquette and Care * When faced with real silverware, usually presented in a bewildering array of knives, forks and spoons, use utensils from the outside in. Some exceptions exist: for example, the oyster fork is presented with the knives, to the right of the plate, the butter knife might come with the bread plate and the dessert silverware is usually presented above the plate. Real silverware is usually silver-plated, so be careful when cleaning it. Polishes are abrasive and can take the coating right off.
Standard Silverware * Standard silverware consists of knives, forks and spoons. Teaspoons, while perhaps more familiar as a unit of measurement, are used to stir your tea. Various sizes of all silverware are available--think of steak knives, with their serrated edges, soup spoons, which are larger than teaspoons, and dessert forks, which might have a broader, outer tine to slice into the cake. Formal training in business dining helps you make the correct choices.
Serving Silverware * Serving silverware includes trowel-shaped cake slicers, which are used to both cut and deliver slices of cake--perhaps to celebrate a corporate milestone or retirement. You also have two-pronged forks to lift meat from the catered barbecue or carvery and appropriately sized ladles--a large scoop on a handle--to pour soup or gravy from a serving dish or gravy boat. Some silverware is designed to make food available for eating: crab crackers, nutcrackers and lobster picks all serve this function.
Plasticware
* Plasticware has its uses for company picnics and large, informal functions. While the waste it produces and the oil-based materials are not environmentally-friendly, plastic knives, forks and spoons are cheap and convenient, saving on clean-up.
Specialty Silverware * Other items in a silverware set might include chopsticks, which can be wood, plastic or bamboo. Rest them on a chopstick cradle to stop them from rolling away; learning to eat with chopsticks gives you a certain empathy with your Asian clients. A few unusual hybrid tools also exist; while you'll find plastic sporks in fast food restaurants, you'll also find lightweight titanium versions in camping supply stores.

Eating utensils are also called flatware. Eating Utensils image by William Berry from Fotolia.com

Flatware is the word used to describe table utensils such as knives, forks and spoons. There are four basic types of flatware: Sterling silverware is made of 92.5 percent pure silver. Silverplate is made of stainless steel with a very thin -- 2 to 60 microns -- coating of silver or gold. Stainless steel may be called "silverware" even though it isn't made of silver. It is made of stainless steel and may shine like silver.

Miscellaneous flatware is made from plastic, ceramic, wood and other materials, alone or in combination.

Silverware Vs. Silverplate How to Identify a Sterling Silver Flatware Pattern

Recognize Kinds of Silver Flatware

Sterling silver flatware is easily recognizable. On the back of the spoon and fork handles you will see the word "sterling" imprinted. A silver pattern name may also be imiprinted there. Sterling silver is very soft and therefore is strengthened with another metal such as copper to prevent the utensil from bending in use. It requires careful washing with soap and water, not in a dishwasher. Then it is dried, polished, and stored in a soft cloth in a closed container. Exposure to air makes it tarnish. It is generally the "company" flatware in a household, not the flatware for everyday use.

Silver plate flatware also has distinguishable marks on the backs of fork and spoon handles. Most commonly, it will be the manufacturer's name, for example "1847 ROGERS BROS", and perhaps a pattern name as well. It will not bear the words "sterling" or "sterling silver." The knife blade may be stamped with the word "stainless." Because it has only a very thin coat of silver, it is generally less expensive than sterling silver flatware. It also should be treated like the sterling silverware. It will scratch easily, tarnish, and if washed in a dishwasher, may lose some of its silver "coat." Silver plated flatware

Stainless steel flatware shines like silver, but it is generally less expensive. It is more rugged than silver and attuned to everyday use. Egg won't stain it as eggs do to silver. It is dishwasher safe. The backs of spoon and fork handles will be imprinted with the word "stainless" and perhaps with a manufacturer's name such as Farberware, and a pattern notation. Stainless steel is an metal alloy, made with iron ore, limestone, coke, chromium, and sometimes nickel, for example. Stainless steel flatware

Other casual kinds of flatware may be made with a stainless and plastic combination, wood, bone, ceramic, plastic or many other materials. Miscellaneous flatware made of stainless steel and plastic.…...

The Golden Age

... The Golden Age Like a flower in bloom, fifth century Attica is said to be the prime time of ancient civilizations. Much praise is given to the period, and it is coined to be the Golden Age of ancient western history. It is claimed that the Athenians of this time period were very successful in many areas, being “originators of democracy…art, history, philosophy, and science.” (Discovering 54) Comparatively I support the claim for Attica’s golden status because it was the most successful city state of its time: with a democratic government, military superiority, and free philosophical thought. The government of Attica was historically the first ever democracy, pioneering ideas of equality and power divided amongst all. In Pericles’ funeral speech, he claims the Athenian “constitution does not copy the laws of neighboring states; we are rather a pattern to others than imitators ourselves.” (Discovering 59) Attican government and laws set the bar of standards of equality that others modeled their own law systems after. The original designers of democracy were highly successful in seeing to it that equal representation existed. It is said that “the laws… afford equal justice to all in their private differences.” (Discovering 59) Some would argue that the democracy was crude because only free, landowning male citizens were allowed to vote: which was true. However one living in Attica was not confined to a certain caste or rank in which they stayed their entire life. In fact,......

Team C first puts the Golden Mean to use in real-world application solving a problem, and follows up with a brief history of the Golden Mean, what it does, where it applies, and how it works. Researched findings on the Golden Mean have been collaborated and discussed in an attempt to fully understand its importance and function. The Golden Mean a=1 b=?

The Golden Tara

...As we can see, art and religion is present in the relic, “The Golden Tara”. The religious culture is manifested by a sculpture, or an idol, showing the artistic capacity of the civilization many years ago. This practice is still present in our time today, similar to the paintings and sculptures of many diverse religions. The discovery of these ancient tools is a proof of technology being used and developed long ago. We already had these basic tools long before we were discovered by different races. These also depict our ancestor’s simple standard of living. Having these tools proves that our ancestors were already looking for advancement in the way they live, and as they develop with time, even more technology is urbanized and more knowledge is unveiled. The practice of Trade has been long present since before the coming of the Spaniards. Evidence of this practice are the Chinese ceramics that were uncovered from some places in Cebu. Trade has always been a major player in the economy, and trading doesn’t only mean exchange of goods, but also exchange of knowledge. Warfare has always played a role in many societies. Most of them are caused by conflicting tribal affairs, protection of power, and ownership of land. In some places of Cebu, some traces of war artifacts are found, proving that warfare was present in the bygone times. Some tools and weapons were excavated and it can also be seen that warfare was of great importance during their time....

The Golden Ration

...The golden ratio is a mathematical ratio of 1 to about 1.618. The golden ratio is found naturally in the world and in nature, but we can create if we try. Most artists that use the golden ratio either use it for the purpose of showing their sheer ability in mathematics to use it correctly and efficiently in their painting, sculptures, and other works of art, or for the mere fact that mankind as a whole has an, as of yet, unexplainable attractions to the golden ratio. Or in other words, the golden ratio makes things better looking or more appealing to the human eye. And because art is seen through the eye of the beholder, having the golden ratio throughout one’s work could be the difference between a piece of art and masterpiece. The first piece of artwork I want to talk about is the Last Supper by renowned painter Leonardo da Vinci. There are golden ration rectangles everywhere. You can see the rectangles on the entire length of the table where the disciples and Jesus are eating. You can also see the rectangles about the faces of said people, split on the disciples on the left, Jesus in the middle, and the disciples on the right. The feet of all the people eating are in their own rectangles as well, once again on the left, middle, and right respectively. Additionally, if you look at the background you can see the golden ratio on the back wall and the windows with an outside view.

Golden Ratio

...THE GOLDEN RATIO Enrico Freitag The golden ration can occur anywhere. The golden proportion is the ratio of the shorter length to the longer length which equals the ratio of the longer length to the sum of both lengths. The golden ratio is a term used to describe proportioning in a piece. In a work of art or architecture, if one maintained a ratio of small elements to larger elements that was the same as the ratio of larger elements to the whole, the end result was pleasing to the eye. The ratio for length to width of rectangles is 1.61803398874989484820. The numeric value is called “phi”. The Golden Ratio is also known as the golden rectangle. The Golden Rectangle has the property that when a square is removed a smaller rectangle of the same shape remains, a smaller square can be removed and so on, resulting in a spiral pattern. The Golden Rectangle is a unique and important shape in mathematics. The Golden Rectangle appears in nature, music, and is often used in art and ar chitecture. Something special about the golden rectangle is that the length to the width equals approximately 1.618… . The golden rectangle has been discovered and used since ancient times. Our human eye perceives the golden rectangle as a beautiful geometric form. The symbol for the Golden Ratio is the Greek letter Phi. The Fibonacci Series was discovered around 1200 A.D.

Existence and occurrence: should have been used to test the revenue and gross profit on its construction projects. By testing to see if the assertion is appropriate to make sure that all revenue and gross profit exist would have brought the attention to the $4 million of un-invoiced construction costs that materialized at the end of fiscal 1997. This assertion test also would have revealed that the earned value method in practice was allowing Paragon to book much larger amounts of revenue and gross profit on its construction projects than it would have under the cost-to-cost method. Completeness: the SEC said that Sullivan and his subordinates should have rigorously tested Paragon’s large amounts of unbilled revenues at the end of 1997. A significant amount of unbilled revenue that is reported as complete should be tested to determine the reason no billing has been posted for the work that was done. It also should be determined the reason income is being recognized for jobs that have not been identified as works in progress to determine the exact completion date of the project.

The Golden Advice

...Tate Fleming The Golden Advice Essay #4 617 The Golden Advice A typical message for all high school students would be, “You better start getting ready for college!” The fact of the matter is, not all high school students know how to get ready for college. Many people get to where they think they`ve always wanted to go, but ended up not liking where they are when it`s too late. College is somewhere you`re going to be spending the next four years of your life, or maybe more, so you want to make sure you`ve put legitimate thought into where you want to go. Every college student has different advice for high school students. Mine to you is start getting a study habit, think about the location of where you want to go to school, and then think about how much it`s going to cost for you to go to the school you`re interested in. For starters, get into a good study habit. Most high schools don`t require near as much studying than what is required for college. Simply put, college is a totally different lifestyle. You`re on your own and you don’t have anyone telling you to study, so you have to make sure you stay on top of everything. Classes are more difficult, test are more difficult, homework is more difficult, the list goes on. Most students get to college and get completely overwhelmed with how much they actually have to study. If you get into a good study habit now, you`ll be much better off and won`t be overwhelmed. That would be my first and probably most......

Golden Ratio

... Central Luzon State University College of Arts and Sciences Department of Psychology The Golden Ratio: Reference of Beauty Submitted to: Nixon Agaser Submitted by: Jam Shimei I. Gamboa Jeanne R. Dadufalza Eden Leigh Pagoso Micah A. Montes The Golden Ratio: Reference of Beauty Beauty has been defined as a combination of qualities that give pleasure to the senses or to the mind. It is a philosophical concept, the aspects of which are studied under the term aesthetics, derived from the Greek word for perception (aisthesis). Aesthetics, therefore, is the study of beauty and, to a lesser extent, it’s opposite the ugly. It involves both the understanding and evaluation of beauty, proportions and symmetry. The assessment of facial beauty is immersed in subjectivity and therefore leans towards the world of art. Facial proportions and facial balance, however, can be measured and therefore fit somewhere between art and science. Aesthetics itself is now essentially a science in the formation, although obviously with a very strong philosophical and artistic background (Naini, et al. 2008.) According to Jang (2014) it is becoming clear that there is a science to beauty. Extensive research has shown that we have similar ideas about what constitutes a beautiful face. When British researchers asked women to rate pictures of various men, their choices were identical. When a group including English, Chinese, and Indians were asked to choose a “good looking” face from a selection of......

The Golden Parachute

...GOVERNANCE AND STRATEGY THE GOLDEN PARACHUTE Prepared for: Professor Toru Yoshikawa By: Matthew Lim Zhi Liang S9118245I An Introduction to the Golden Parachute When we talk about executive compensation, one topic that never fails to come up is the Golden Parachute. The Golden Parachute, as the name suggest is an executive safety net of sorts that is included in the employment contracts of senior-level executives. Basically it is a special payment – usually a lump-sum amounting to millions, that is paid in the event of a change in control of the company1. The reasons for the implementation of the Golden Parachute is something that has been constantly debated, but the most common objective, and the objective I will be focusing on in this paper is to control the behaviour of the management in the event of a acquisition2. Often times when an acquisition occurs, the management of the acquired firm will not stay with the new firm, meaning that their will not benefit from the acquisition, but would rather suffer if the acquisition occurs. As such they might be inclined to try to prevent the acquisition, and not act in the best interest of the shareholders3. The Golden Parachute serves to ensure that the management acts in the best interest of the shareholders by providing a mechanism to protect their own personal self interest. Another objective that is often talked about would be that of an anti-takeover mechanism4. The Golden Parachute serves as a......

Tara

...* On Mobile * Publish Notes * Book * UGC-NET * Twitter * Facebook * Contact Us Tara: Mahesh Dattani Mahesh Dattani has presented the bizarre reality of the woman playing second fiddle to man. This play opens with Chandan changed into Dan in order to absolve himself from the guilt of killing his sister. He has to bear the brunt of his grandfather’s and mother’s cruelty .He considers himself responsible for his sister’s death. In this play Dattani plays with the idea of female infanticide that is prevalent among the Gujratis and also suggests Patel`s hegemonic patriarchy when he insists that proper division in the gender roles be made Tara gives us a glimpse into the modern society which claims to be liberal and advanced in its thought and action. In a society which claims that its mothers are educated today and have `Devis` like Durga, Kali, Saraswati , Lakshmi etc whom not only women but men also pay obeisance , differentiate between a male child and a female child. All the propagandas of equality between male and female, equal opportunities to women in all the fields are belied. Dattani’s deep preoccupation with gender issues leads to the emergence of the idea of the twin side to one`s self –quite literally embodied in one body and the separation that follows Mahesh Dattani mentioned in one of his interviews with Lakshmi Subramanyam: ``I see Tara as a play about the male self and female self. The male self is being preferred in all cultures .The......

The Golden Rule

...Book final final THE GOLDEN RULE as THE SUPREME PRINCIPLE implications for FAITH Faith within the Limits of Love and Reason SECTION ONE: Why Reason Must Have the Final Word To see why reason must have the final word in all things, I will illustrate the role of reason in three different cases. This I think should suffice to make the point. (1) Consulting Some Authority Suppose we are confronted with two or more conflicting alternatives concerning what to say, think or do and in hopes of resolving this confusing conflict, we seek out some wiser person, some authority, who can give us the correct answer. This raises the question: Who is the authority we can turn to: our Mom, our Dad, our grandparent, a priest or a clergyman, a Rabbi or Ayatollah, a bodhisattva, a therapist or counselor, the Pope, a lawyer, a real estate agent, an auto mechanic? Well, of course, our choice depends on the nature of our problem. So, reason needs to play a role here in helping us to determine what kind of authority to consult. Okay, let us suppose that our conflict is of a religious nature. We still need to ask which priest, which clergyman, which Rabbi, which Ayatollah or which bodhisattva etc. to choose. So here again, reason has a role to play. There is more. After we have settled who to consult, sometimes we will find that the advice is really bad advice. Sometimes we will find that the advice is really good advice. On still other occasions, we won't know what to make of the......
