Certified etiquette consultant Alexandra Kovach conducts a crash course in dining etiquette, with participants living out the tutorial during a delicious three-course dinner with pre-selected wine. Topics of the course include seating, eating styles, napkin etiquette, toasting, dinner-party hosting, and how to be a good guest. With an open forum style and a limit of 40 people per class, the course allows its participants the opportunity to ask Alexandra about where to put the fork after finishing a meal and how to properly react when someone accidentally pours soup on your unpublished manuscript.
- During these events, groups of strangers come together to learn that manners matter and to ask a lot of questions about eating continental style and where the napkin goes when you leave the table. – Jessica Estepa, Roll Call
