FORMAL TABLE
AND DINING ETIQUETTE


Although formal dining seems to be declining these
days there maybe times when it is necessary to attend a formal function
or even host one yourself.

Where do you start?

What cutlery do you use for each course? 
What is the correct position for each item of cutlery, glass, plate etc? 
What should each course aim to achieve?  Is there anything else of
which we should be aware to avoid embarrassment?

Hopefully we can help answer some of these
questions.

There is already an article
here covering many aspects to help when
attending or arranging a formal dinner party including table settings,
but I have now found an excellent and informative infographic created by
https://www.JESRestaurantEquipment.com that clearly lays out the rules of formal
table etiquette.
