Dining with

There is so much more to dining etiquette than the basics of not eating with your mouth full and keeping your elbows off the table. From making conversation to the correct handling of flatware, one of the toughest tasks is talking and eating with poise and finesse, especially with the opportunity for blunders around every corner.

This programme will provide you with everything you need to know from dining in a local Bistro to attending a Government White Tie Dinner.

The tuition begins with the theory of dining etiquette and continues over a three-course luncheon or dinner at one of London’s most established and quintessentially English restaurants*.
