"Tiffany's Table Manners" takes us through a formal meal in 6 chapters, with advice on using utensils and eating politely for each: "Let's Be Seated", "The Soup Course", "The Fish Course", "The Meat Course", "The Salad Course", and "The Dessert Course". Chapter 7, "Some Don'ts", warns the reader against common no-no's. Etiquette is debatable and changeable, of course. This book advocates eating with your left hand, in the European style, when using a fork and knife, claiming that shifting the fork from left to right hand repeatedly is "clumsy and awkward". I tend to agree, but many etiquette experts consider eating with the left hand to be affected or, worse, gluttonous. Mr. Hoving acknowledges that there are other systems of etiquette, but believes the one presented here is "attractive, graceful, and above all, natural." I think most readers will agree. "Tiffany's Table Manners for Teenagers" is a nice, straightforward reference for the whole family.
Well illustrated, instructions given in a non-condescending manner. With the current level of knowledge about table manners, I'd say this book is suitable for anyone, not just teenagers.
Mr. Hoving, the former chairman of the board of Tiffany & Company, will walk you through the proper table manners in a step-by-step approach. He will also address alot of common mistakes and "don't" in numbers of illustrations; for example, don't leave your spoon in your coffee cup! This book covers different meal courses like the soup course, the fish course, the meat course, the salad course, as well as the dessert course. Overall, I find this book is very interesting and helpful. I highly recommend for people looking for a quick and easy way to learn good table manners.
(Reviewed by Otto Yuen, 5-Nov-2004)
It goes course by course explaining the proper way to spoon soup, how to properly use a knife and fork, etc.
It also explains what to do if you drop your fork or spoon, find a bone in your food, etc.
Short, concise, with amusing illustrations, this book has knowledge that can be used immediately for an instant step-up in manners.
It's also a great fake-out gift for your teenagers at Christmas. That Tiffany's bag got my heart racing on Christmas morning when I found it under the tree back in the day (thanks, Dad!).
