Lesson 2:

  • Place Setting and Bread Etiquette:

Students learn how to set their own place at the table. Students will also learn how to properly eat dinner rolls and pass items around the table.

Lesson 3:

  • Continental Dining and Napkin etiquette:

Students will learn how to properly hold and use their silverware with confidence and learn the resting (still eating) positition, and close-out (all done) position; this silent service code is a way for a diner to communicate to waitstaff during a meal to indicate whether the diner is finished with their plate. This is intended to prevent situations where the server might remove a plate of food and utensils prematurely. They will also be taught the five uses of the napkin when dining.
