Unfulfilled potential 5 février 2004
Par Chris Frost - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In "Dinner is Served", Arthur Inch hopes to leave us with the rapidly disappearing rules for old-fashioned gracious living. With his extensive experience in service, he is most definitely qualified to do so, and yet he only offers glimpses of his total knowledge. While many of the things in this book will never actually be used by the average person due to their expense and impracticality, there is still much that can and should be put to use in every-day living. While some may view these rules or standards as superfluous or even snobbish, the fact is that these have all been developed over many years and each has its own very legitimate reason for being. The complaints I have with this book are ones that could have been easily remedied. When discussing and describing the various types of tableware, more pictures would have been useful. Only select pieces have been illustrated, leaving the others subject to the whims of the imagination. And while he mentions several different napkin folds, and even specifies his own personal favorite fold, he never explains how to make these folds or shows how they are supposed to look. The sections on how to be the perfect host/hostess and guest, and on how to eat certain different foods could prove to be useful in reducing the potential for embarrassment in the future, and the section explaining the hierarchy of menservants was quite interesting, even if only as a history lesson that serves to demonstrate the logistical nightmares that formal dining can create.

Enjoyable Book 28 juin 2012
Par Joseph - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
First off, I'm going to say that I don't necessarily disagree with what the other reviewers had to say. It is a light book and might be a considered more historical than instructional. However, I borrowed the book from the library so I guess I'm not as sour about 'crushed expectations.'

I do feel like what the books offers is offered well. I have some kind of idea about the "gracious living" Inch describes throughout the book. I also learnt some practical things that I can choose to apply.

Given that this book is sold for such a cheap price (there's at least one listing for four dollars shipped at the time of writing), I'd recommend giving it a read if you are interested in the mentioned topics. Admittedly, if you only care about contemporary table etiquette, you can probably find more pertinent books.

Proper Advice 10 mars 2013
Par HRH Victoria IIR - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This is an invaluable book from a completely successful (consumate professional) English butler Mr. Arthur Inch & co-author
Arlene Hirst. It hooked me from the first page on & provided a detailed bibliography for further edification of formal & informal dinning. Easy to read & well illustrated, for a small book, it sets up the steps needed to adhere to in order to continue the civilized dinning pattern of Western culture.

Wonderful short reference for prospective butlers or persons who are recreating Edwardian Dining. Further reading should include Forgotten Elegance, THE guide to flatware and table setting.
