Sitting Pretty: AKA Table Etiquette
At the end of dinner, leave the napkin tidily on the place setting

When asked to pass the salt, pass both the salt and pepper

NEVER start eating before everyone at your table has their plate

It is not generally regarded as good dinner table etiquette to use one's bread for dipping into soups or mopping up sauces

Talking with one's mouth full is not only unpleasant to watch, but could also lead to choking! Definitely not a good idea!

Don't stretch across the table crossing other guests to reach food, wine or condiments. Instead ask a guest sitting close to pass the item to you
