TRADITIONAL ETIQUETTE OF EATING #4

LETTUCE--leaves should not be cut, but folded up with a fork and then lifted to the mouth. In the event of these being too large for this treatment, they should be broken into suitable pieces with the fork.

NAPKINS--are laid on the lap, and, when finished with, are not folded up unless one is a guest for a few days; on all other occasions they are left unfolded. A good plan is to follow the example of the hostess.

OLIVES--are eaten with the fingers.

ORANGES--if served in divided sections, sweetened, and with the seeds removed, should be eaten with the fork. If served whole, cut into suitable portions. Remove seeds and skin.

PEACHES--should be quartered and the quarters peeled, then taken up by the fingers and eaten.


There is no love sincerer than the love of food.
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
