Tiffany's Table Manners for Teenagers (Hardcover) (Walter Hoving & Joe Eula)
about this item
Here is the perfect little book for anyone—teenage or otherwise—who has ever wanted to master the art of good table manners. Written by Walter Hoving, former chairman of Tiffany's of New York, it is a step-by-step introduction to all the basics, from the moment the meal begins ("It is customary for the young man to help the young lady on his right to be seated") to the time it ends ("Remember that a dinner party is not a funeral, nor has your hostess invited you because she thinks you are in dire need of food. You're there to be entertaining"). In addition to the essentials about silverware, service, and sociability, it includes many of the fine points, too—the correct way to hold a fish fork, how to eat an artichoke properly, and, best of all, how to be a gracious dining companion.Concise, witty, and illustrated with humor and style by Joe Eula, this classic guide to good table manners has delighted readers of all ages for more than 50 years.
Written by the former chairman of Tiffany's, this is a simplified, illustrated guide to basic table manners for anyone--teenaged or not--who'd like to dine correctly. More than a handbook on which fork to use, this small volume explains how to be graceful and sociable when dining out and at home.
