Great for brides-to-be or anyone going to a dinner party
Saw a piece in the May '07 issue of Glamour about eating bread politely that talked about this book so I picked up a copy. I think it's great. I wish this book had been out when I registerd for wedding gifts! The author tells you about all of the pieces of the table setting (sizes, shapes, the difference between a butter knife and a butter spreader), which side of the plate things go on (place settings are for right-handed people), and more. The author even goes into the history, too, like why champagne is sometimes served in thin flutes and sometimes in circular coupes. Not only is it useful for setting a table, but now I can figure out what's probably going to be served when I go out to dinner at someone's house--and what to do with that knife that fell on the floor. Finally, the book has a napkin folding section in the back sure to be helpful for any meal.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
