Fed-up hostess

Dear Queenie,

  When I have guests for a meal I serve the food buffet-style. There is one person who always gets in line first for the buffet and takes the best parts of everything and leaves the rest for the others.

  I have asked this person not to do this, but they still do it.

  Queenie, what do you suggest?—Fed-up hostess

Dear Hostess,

  Stop serving your guests buffet-style. Seat them all at a large table and pass the serving dishes around, making sure that this person is far from the first to be served. Or, make up a plate for each guest in the kitchen.
