What is the proper(!) etiquette for intermezzo service. Specifically, is the liner plate for the intermezzo set on top of the charger? Is the charger removed w/the appetizer, before the intermezzo is served? My understanding is that the spoon is chilled prior to service; if so, does that mean that only one intermezzo is served at a time, requiring a return trip to the kitchen? Is it acceptable to set the intermezzo spoon along with the rest of the place setting, perhaps above the plate?
Our guests are very refined and I prefer not to drop the ball on this particular course. Thanks for any help!!! -Jim
