Who better to ensure the nation’s table manners come up to scratch than an English butler with over 10 years’ experience? With the revival in good manners, etiquette, spelling and grammar, this is a timely book on table manners and dining etiquette to ensure grace at the table at all times.

Covers all aspects of eating etiquette from napkin folding, cutlery, glasses,
bread rolls (never use a knife!) and silver service to how to eat soup, spaghetti,
escargots and artichokes and open a bottle of champagne. With diagrams for
those tricky table placements and eating actions and a range of tips and hints,
the book is the last word on how to eat. It will ensure that you and your family
never let the side down whatever the company you keep while dining.
