WHAT CAN AND CANNOT BE DONE
The language of flatware
Despite what one might think, flatware does not allow us to judge the appreciation of a dish or food. In the more formal occasions of the past it was considered incorrect to talk to butlers and waiters during the meal. For this reason a simple and immediate language of good manners was born to give some operational indications to the staff, through the position of the flatware during breaks and at the end of the meal. Remember that flatware must never touch the tablecloth during and after use. And above all... never cross the flatware!
