Eating in China

I’ve learned a lot from etiquette expert William Hanson on how to behave when dining in China (so I’m prepared if I ever do go!). (Perhaps the company I’m working for at present wants to send me!)

Would you know what to do and what not to do?

Mind your manners – and learn some rules

You’ve been invited out for a meal in the US and are not sure how to behave at the table.

Use the drink’s correct name

According to British etiquette expert William Hanson, we should only use the word “Champagne” if what we’re serving really is Champagne.

Instead of calling it ‘fizz’, ‘bubbly’ or ‘sparkling’, which you’ll often hear in Britain, call it by its real name “Prosecco’. It’s a perfectly acceptable drink.
