I've only had my food plated up for me as an adult at one particular place - they gave me veg I don't eat/ too much/too little of something. I'm perfectly capable of choosing what I want.

I'd hate to have my food plated up for me and would hate to do it for someone else. I want to choose what I want and how much, and I'd want my guests to feel free to do the same. I'd feel like I was back at school.

We host Christmas most years - 12-16 of us usually. I always portion everything out and plate up, I think guests should be presented with what the chef makes as they would in any restaurant; but of course there's no pressure to eat anything you don't like such as sprouts; just leave it.
it also tends to keep food hotter, far less washing up and keeps the table clear and prevents people reaching over each-other and taking more than is fair, or people being scared to take enough.
