Q: How do you hold a glass of champagne?
A: Hold the glass on the stem.....not on the rounded top.
Q: Are you serving drinks in the right glasses?
A: Red wine glass is bigger in size than white wine glass. Champagne is served in a flute- tall long slim glass. Beer/ale/Guinness stout/water in tumblers (thick large glasses). Spirits- sherries, whiskey,
brandy and port in short rounded glasses.
Gentlemen must not forget to gently swirl their drink like 007 James Bond. ... b4 they take a sniff and sip. Don't stir it. Let the aroma
hit your nose! Did I hear you protest 'who has time for this please'?
do you drink wine?
A: You sip wine.You don't gulp it down like water, biko. Remember wine glass etiquette.....hold on the stem of the glass with your thumb finger firmly. Don't grab the glass on the rounded
middle. Too 'bush' please! Sip it quietly...no nasal sound or irritating lip smacking ...licking it away. Sniff to check the aroma to savour the full
flavour. Cheers... D I N G!
Q: How do you use
set of cutlery on the table?
A:Navigate from outward to inward. Start on the left with the starter/appertiser fork, main dish fork beside the plate then pair
with knife on the right side of the plate-salad knife, soup spoon, butter knife where applicable. Cutlery arrangement depends on what is being served. If unsure, take a quick look at other diners and correct your error. WAHALA. No noisy click-clack cutlery hitting the plate... don't even help to clear up b4 other diners finish their meals. Be patient and wait.
No noisy munching like a horse please! Close your mouth, chew quietly...nothing should fly out from your mouth, use napkin or tissue to wipe away unsightly food particles settling around lip corners,yuk! Ensure your table napkin has
been arranged as a baby bip to avoid accidental food stains on your clothes. No loud burp and tooth-picking on the table. All phones on mute mode. Thank you very much!
Gentlemen don't forget to walk behind your ladies when you exit the dining area (African Men Take Note 😝🤑😎🤪🤣).
