I have been accused in the past of watching sitcom repeats a little too often...but sometimes they teach you things you never thought you'd need.
Such as how to eat a buffet.
In an episode of one of my favourites, Will and Grace, Grace the buffet expert, navigates Leo past the "fillers", that is the bread and pasta, straight to the expensive items such as the crab.
So I had that fully in mind when we got to the gourmet buffet at the Bellagio in Las Vegas (we'd won money on the tables and decided to treat ourselves).
Plates filled with crabs legs, sushi, prawns, prime rib, paella and things we thought we should 'try' just cause, filled our table.
Plus, of course, our speciality sampler plate of delectable french pastries.
