Product Overview

A Gentleman at the Table will give any man the knowledge he needs to maneuver any dining situation - from a casual meal of fried chicken at his moms house to a seven-course dinner at the finest restaurant in the world. It includes. . .

  • How to set a table
  • How to pronounce more than 100 unusual food names
  • How to use obscure eating utensils
  • How to perform the Heimlich maneuver
  • How to eat more than 25 foods that are challenging to eat gracefully such as lobster, snails, fried chicken, and pasta.

In a society where more and more people eat with plastic forks and spoons at fast food restaurants, it is still important that a man know proper dining etiquette. There are still situations where not knowing what a finger bowl is or not knowing how to pronounce an item on a menu can have an effect on what others think of you. Showing he has little working knowledge of table manners at a lunch meeting or on a job interview over dinner may have an important impact on a mans life.

Like all the books in the GentleManners series, A Gentleman at the Table is easy to use, non-threatening, and an entertaining read.
