Table Manners are about eating gracefully.  If you're looking for a good job, your ideal partner, to impress the in-laws, to fit in better, to know what to do and when, then learn this to feel more at ease so you can get on with the pleasure of enjoying yourself. 

Learning how to eat fish, meat, awkward foods, what to do with all the bits and bobs and when, how to eat pudding, cheese and then dessert, even down to using the salt and pepper, is easy - only here, you'll learn the formal way. 

The focus in this e-book is on English Table Etiquette and no other book will take you through it step-by-step in the same way, making it easy to learn the essential and extra etiquette and rituals.

Why Knowing is Important ...

I've sat next to career people who shovel food into their mouths then tried to nick their bosses coffee cup, another their client's wine glass at a formal dinner.  It did not impress, and on one occassion cost them a promotion. 

We all occassionally dine with people outside our usual social circle or in circumstances that ask us to lift our game, such as a wedding, business lunch, a Christmas party, or an awards dinner, for example. And actually, most of us like to do well in these situations. It's fun, and it gives us a sense of what we're capable of.

I have been to the smartest of restaurants, and despite their rude staff, could not be intimidated.  My confidence enabled me to sit back and think, I'm here to enjoy a good meal, thanks.  In fact, waiters often treat you with more respect when they sense you know your stuff.

Knowing this information can make a huge difference to your nerves.  I met with two different members of the aristocracy for their help with this material and yes I was nervous.  But, I went in knowing what you're going to learn, while fine tuning some of it with their help.  As for the nerves, after a few lunches, I was fine!

But this isn't about social class. With luxury goods available to the masses the skills that go with luxury are back on the menu

This is about taking positive actions to give yourself the best opportunities in life and help build your self-confidence.  And that's for everyone, no matter what your situation or background.

The truth is...

I go to and hold dinner parties just like everyone else, and what's wonderful is, I don't even have to consciously think about this stuff anymore.  It's just habit! 

So, what do I focus on instead, companionship, because ultimately, that's what enjoying posh nosh with other people is all about!

There are no secrets here!  

We've made it easy to learn and everyone, regardless of background, will be surprised at how much and how quickly you'll integrate what you learn into your daily life.  So, whether you're at a casual café for lunch or at a high society event, you'll feel relaxed. 

And what will you end up with ... really smart table manners. 

And what's brilliant is, once you know it, you know it forever!

When was the last time you spent less than a 'tenner' on your education, and got this kind of a return.  This is a one-off investment with dividends that last a lifetime!  

INVEST IN YOURSELF.  It's worth it!
