Have you ever found yourself running short of conversation at a dinner party? Also, where does the host sit, and who sits to his or her right? Which wine do you serve with which meal? Have you ever found yourself needing to give a toast or speech, but don’t quite know how to tie your words together to sound both fluent and entertaining?
At one time or another, there’s a fair chance most of us will encounter an awkward moment or two where one’s etiquette skills come unstuck. We’re all taught basic manners as a child, but on some occasions that won’t be enough.
Now, etiquette has certainly evolved over the past century, and Maison Impériale is here to give you a lesson in how to conduct yourself in the 21st Century. This is not just about teaching you where to put your bread roll, this is a modern run through of social etiquette in 2017: from Savoir Faire to cross-cultural intelligence, current affairs, appreciation of all things grape, food presentation and even entrepreneurship.
So whether you simply want to make sure you don’t commit a social faux pas at that upcoming high-brow event, or if you’re looking to swat up on your social etiquette, this is the place for you.
