Rules of the game

Like good taste, good etiquette never goes out of style. Just out of mind.

If you never learned the difference between a fish knife and a butter spreader, how to set a formal table, or the nuances of dining etiquette, take a look at Elements of the Table: A Simple Guide for Hosts and Guests by Lynn Rosen (Clarkson Potter).

"Elements of the Table" by Lynn Rosen, $15.95. At major bookstores.
