Hilton Tower Bridge Function Sheets for the week, banquet kitchen

Name of the Tutor: Chris Maugino Name of the Author: Niroshan Perera

IntroductionIn this Assignment, I have learned about the venues that are suitable for a any kind of events. I did this assignment as a group work and we had six people in our group. Each person took one venue for their preferences to complete the first activity. For the second one we had long discussion in the class room, finally we completed that activity too. When I finding about the Hilton Tower Bridge, I visited the banquet department for several times to get information, since I used to worked for their executive lounge, it was bit easy for me to get the fully details from the food and beverage supervisor called Peter. So big thank to him! I was able to get menu, drinks list, wine list and even an Event Order as well. I have put pictures of event order in Appendix 01. I really enjoyed this activity especially visiting the banquet department and meeting Mr.Peter. Its a nice experience for me and I learned so much about that particular banquet as well as the hotel. Without any hesitate I can make an Event Order now. In Hilton Tower Bridge they used to call it Function Sheet. My group members did others venues and I have put that in the break down of the work at the end of the Activity one. I got their work in the eve of 22nd and quickly translate into my one, so thank to my group members for their hard work as well! I take this opportunity to say
