The Complete Guide to Table MannersStreaming Video - 2006
This entertaining video takes both a serious and a humorous look at the importance of learning table manners. Viewers see the benefits of learning proper techniques so that they become natural rather than using correct manners only on special occasions. Starting with a discussion of different kinds of meal settings, utensils, and the order in which they are used, viewers are taken through the steps of a meal. This entertaining production illustrates the importance of a good posture, how to hold and use utensils, and how to be prepared for conversation. The program shows the correct way to eat most common foods (salads, soups, breads, steaks, desserts, etc.) Viewers learn what to do when faced with tricky situations-a drink is spilled or a utensil dropped, food is offered which they don't or can't eat, a question is asked and their mouth is full, a situation arises and they don't know what to do, and much more! This video covers both formal and informal occasions and teaches manners that will assure confidence in any dining situation.
