How to roll up cutlery - restaurant style

By: Canadian Living

cutlery and napkin Rolling up cutlery in a napkin (" roll-ups" as they are called in the restaurant industry) is a convenient way to corral the essential utensils needed for enjoying an informal meal. I like to make these for buffet-style meals or basically any gathering in the summer. They're super simple to make and can be done well in advance of when the guests arrive. Here's how to do it:  how to roll up cutlery restaurant style Fold napkin in half into a triangle. Stack cutlery and place in middle of long edge. Fold over both corners, overlapping the ends. Starting at the flat side, roll up tightly. Secure with a ribbon if desired. cutlery roll ups This works equally well with cloth or paper napkins. I like to put the roll-ups in a basket placed near the plates so everyone can grab one as they gather their food. Tip: Always make a couple extra roll-ups than number of guests, just in case.   Photography by Leah Kuhne
