This was a great book to read, and it didn't take long to do so. For me it was a reminder of how I was brought up, but even so some manners were perhaps even then not as they should have been. I always tried to ensure my family had good table manners, but sadly things slip as they get older and have their own children, but "granny" always tries to enlighten when she can. This is really good because it does tell you when slight variations are acceptable. Nowadays mealtimes are less formal - but buffets are still very common place - and we have all seen the piled plates! Read just for fun if nothing else, and little bits will stick.
A fantastic book. The guide that tells you everything you need to know about formal table manners! Beautifully made, with a very attractive 'Art Deco' style. Would not hesitate to recommend this fabulous and funny book.
