Table manners can be essential when dining with a fancier crowd. Follow these simple tips at your next business dinner.
Salt and Pepper Stick Together
Even when someone only asks for the salt, give them the pepper as well. The salt and pepper should never be separated.
Dig in at the Right Time
When you are invited to dinner at someone’s home, always wait for the host to begin their meal before reaching for your fork.
Napkins are Not Tissues
Napkins at a dinner should only be used for lightly wiping the corners of your mouth. If you need to blow your nose, excuse yourself to use the restroom.
Practice Quiet Eating
No one wants to hear you chewing and slurping away! Scraping a plate is also considered poor table manners.
When sitting down for a proper meal, it’s correct etiquette to taste your food before seasoning it additionally in any way.
Holding A Wineglass
Red wine glasses may be held by the bowl, but white wine should always be held by the stem. The warmth of our fingers is said to gently heat the wine when it is held by the bowl.
