Modern American Manners

Dining Etiquette for Hosts and Guests
by Fred Mayo with photos by Michael Gold

​“Fabulous … a sensible, simple, concise, and fun approach.”
—Kevin Zraly, James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award winner

“The essentials of contemporary manners … all illustrated with Michael’s spot on, often humorous, photographs.”
—Melanie Young, host of The Connected Table LIVE!

“Clearly written and comprehensive … belongs in the hands of everyone who would have the world think well of them.”
—Darrin Siegfried, president emeritus, Sommelier Society of America

“A useful guide to navigating the often confusing—and always evolving—world of manners at today’s dinner table. Among many things, it is a quiet plea to acknowledge civility at a time when we apparently need it most.”
—James Oseland, former editor-in-chief of Saveur magazine and judge on Top Chef Masters
