Which Fork is for Salad?
Have you ever felt embarrassed at a fancy dinner when you realize you don’t have your napkin on your lap like everyone else does, or you’re not sure which fork to use?
You can learn what to do in such a situation by attending the Etiquette Dinner on Monday, February 20, hosted by L&S Career Services. Etiquette Professional Susan Richardson, owner of Etiquette Essentials, will be presenting.
At the dinner, you’ll learn about how to properly pass food to others at your table, how to signal to your waiter that you are finished with your meal, and many other etiquette necessities.
These tips are all needed in any social situation where you will be dining with someone you want to impress. Plus, business dinners will most likely occur in your life, no matter what field you go into. You don’t want to be the one to make a faux pas while interviewing or working with a potential client.
What better way is there to learn about etiquette than enjoying a four course gourmet meal in a non-intimidating atmosphere?
The meal is at the University Club from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Dinner includes a vegetarian soup; salad; smoked Gouda, artichoke and garlic stuffed chicken served with linguini and peas; and cheesecake with assorted toppings for dessert. The vegetarian option will have eggplant parmesan.
Business casual attire is highly recommended.
