I can list many problems but the main ones are the following:
--She NEVER gives examples with REAL food
--She's VERY disorganized in the way she presents this info
--She uses this video as an excuse to show off her house, and she does spend most of her time showing off her house
--A lot of her advice is not practical or relevant to business dining, etc.
--I don't agree with some of the things she says about etiquette, based on what I've heard from REAL WINE EXPERTS, such as when she says it's okay to hold a wine red wine glass from the top
--She demonstrates ONLY the "American Style" way of holding utensils, which even though it's an appropriate way, it is not practical. At least the YouTube videos by Nancy Mitchell show the viewer both ways: American Style and Continental Style
Bottom line, DON'T waste your money on this video. :S
