Brown or black shoes? Serviette or table napkin? Eau de Cologne or au naturel? Out in the sticks your knuckles may not get rapped for dressing, eating or even smelling wrong at the table, but when wining and dining with the movers and shakers, you'll need to mind your manners, if you don't want to sink your social and corporate ambitions. Fear not: Glynn Christian is here to give fresh, funny and - best of all - seriously useful advice on how to avoid ghastly gaffes and impress the best. Glynn turns his wickedly critical eye to every vital element of table etiquette, whether it's knowing which knife to use, when not to eat raw onion, or how to sip soup politely. It's all vital advice, and if you're upwardly mobile, you never know when you might need it!
Food writer, biographer and broadcaster Glynn Christian is an international TV personality and the author of several books on subjects ranging from cookery (including the Delicatessen Handbook) to gourmet travel (Edible France) and biography (Fragile Paradise, a study of his ancestor, the mutineer Fletcher Christian).
