First Time At A Southern Dinner Table?
"Southern Hospitality" is not just a phrase..it's a way of life in the South.
Good table manners are valued by Southern families. Be sure to compliment your host on their food. Should you ask for a second serving of any item, it will please your host.
Southerners admire one's appreciation of food and a healthy appetite. Feel free to ask for the recipe of an item you especially liked.
Be polite, friendly and enjoy the wonders of Southern cooking.
Then look forward to future invitations.
