ETIQUETTE AT THE SOUTHERN TABLE

If you are invited to a Southerner's home for dinner for the first time, it will be useful to be familiar with some common Southern customs. "Southern Hospitality" is not just a phrase...it's a way of life in the South. Much of Southern life revolves around food and when you enter a Southerner's home, even for a casual visit, you should expect to be offered food and/or a beverage. It is polite to at least accept a beverage if not food.

Good table manners are valued by the Southern family so do your best to be civil. Be sure to compliment your host on at least one dish you especially like. Try not to leave any food on your plate if possible, and should you ask for a second serving of any item, it will please your host. Feel free to ask for that special Southern recipe of anything you really liked. In short, most Southerners admire one's appreciation of food and a healthy appetite.

It is likely that your host will wish to say grace before eating. If this is not your custom, just go along with it quietly. Make no comment. In summary, be polite, friendly and enjoy the wonders of Southern cooking. Then look forward to future invitations.
