Dining Etiquette Tutorial

Have you ever dreaded the company dinner party because your idea of dining out is driving through a fast food restaurant? Or because at a crowded table you don’t know which water glass is yours?

Traditionally, table manners were taught at the table every single day…not any more!

Whether you have been taught and need a reminder or you’re clueless, Maria Everding’s dining etiquette tutorial will put you at ease in any situation.

The length of the presentation is about 1-1/2 hours and covers everything from extending the invitation and who sits where to ordering wine and tipping.

It can be as few as 3 courses or as many as 6 or 7. If asked, Maria Everding will make suggestions to the chef and work with the waitstaff to be sure this will be a memorable experience.

You will become more confident at any meal whether as a host or guest at home or in a restaurant.

Companies don’t make deals, people do and quite often it’s over a meal.

The BBC completed a documentary in May, 2005 tracing Charles Dickens steps throughout the United States. Since one of Dickens’ stops was St. Louis, MO the BBC contacted Maria Everding to film one of her business etiquette dining tutorials with actress Miriam Margoyles participating. Charles Dickens felt that Americans had terrible manners. Not after one of Maria Everding’s dining etiquette tutorials. The taping took place at Webster University and aired in London in May 2005 – and on the PBS after that.
