I am posting this to go along with my last thread;

This is a review from a Man on 3 Books for what he thinks are the Three Best Etiquette Books for Men
http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/252256/the_three_best_etiquette_books_for.html?cat=38

This one I just found as an interesting read;

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/172554/sushi_eating_etiquette_a_guide_to_how.html?cat=22

I usually eat sushi with my fingers.  My last time out I was doing so well with my chopsticks and the salad, I just kept using them and astonishing myself.  I did not intend to be rude.  Live and Learn.   :)

That's pretty neat NoGNoG, thanks for posting it.  I liked the sushi guide especially.  I enjoy the rituals of cooking and eating (slim as they are in western culture compared to say Japan).

I have a bit of a thing for Japanese culture, cuisine and architecture, but have never come across the sushi etiquette before.

I am sure the person with you was impressed with your handling of such untesils. :)

I actually like the taste of wasabi and soy soy mixed together so i'm disappointed tht it's a taboo.  :-[

Me too, James and I have absolutely no intention of observing the custom of consuming them separately!  Don't you think some rules in life are meant to be broken?  ;D

LMAO - Hey, I'm sensitive, I cook, and I have a range of choppers! (but no axe to grind).  Does that make me the perfect companion? ;)

You know you can be dressed in the finest suit in your wardrobe, or perhaps ripped jeans & a t-shirt, or even dressed in drag - a woman will always spot a gentleman at dinner.

I agree totally with NoGNog

Qualities of a gentleman (or a lady for that matter) shine through whether one is dressed in Armani at a top dining establishment or in comfy trackies (Australian for tracksuit) eating pizza!

At least with pizza one does not have to be overly concerned with correct cutlery.

Amusing moment Dept. At dinner in the Sydney Tower bistro many, many moons ago I did not realise the thing rotated until the oysters arrived. What a strange feeling it was to see the Blue Mountains (view thereof) move...  :o

I thought Mountains are comming to Mohammed after all. But no... not really. ;D

All this reading is well and good Cole, but wouldn't a true gentleman re-introduce himself to everyone after a period of absence?  There are many new faces on here who would perhaps like to say hello, it's still a very friendly bunch on here.
