Dining and Social Etiquette

"The way we eat gives away a great deal about us: this very public exhibition is impossible to hide and says more about us in one mouthful than our entire CV. One faux pas too far and all could be lost and, believe me, it’s amazing what a knife and folk will betray!"

~ Nicholas Clayton
