Serving a Meal

Basic Table Manners
When eating follow these simple table manners. Place your napkin in your lap. If you are in a small group make sure everyone has their food before eating. In a large group you may start eating as soon as you get your food. Don't talk with food in your mouth. Ask someone to pass the food rather than reaching across the table
Clearing the Table
When everyone's finished eating, its time to clear the table. Stand to the side of each person as you pick up the dishes from the place setting. Then carry the dishes to the cleanup area. do not scrape or stack the dishes on the table
There are lots of important safety rules to follow. A good rule to follow is if you break glass pick up the big pieces with your hands and then use a damp paper towel. Another good rule to follow is if you spill something pick it up immediately.
Always wash your hands before and after handling food. Tie your hair back in a ponytail when cooking. Never cut food on a cutting board that was used for meat without washing it.
