Jeremiah Tower - Table Manners: How to Behave in the Modern World and Why Bother

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 23, 2016 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

One of the pioneers of California Cuisine, Tower is a chef and the author of several cookbooks, including the James Beard award-winning New American Classics. His latest work, however, focuses not on the food but on the table. A witty and useful guide to modern etiquette, this primer goes beyond the question of which fork to use, offering advice on how to dress and how to converse, what to do about food allergies, RSVPs, and running late. He also covers the emerging rules of “Techiquette,” which, like other elements of social grace, boil down to a kind of golden rule: “the more you think about others around you,” Tower reminds us, “the more likely you are to behave well.”
