Don’t know what to do with that napkin? This is a list of the top 10 tips to help you get by if you are invited to a fine dining experience. The rules may vary from place to place but this should serve as a good guide. 1. This is one of the most common problems for people that are used to flatware (knives and forks) being brought to the table with each course. Always take small portions of food at a time and put your cutlery down between each mouthful. You should always hold both your knife and fork – you should not cut your food up at the start and then use your fork only (this is an American tradition and is generally fine in America, but not in Europe).

Do not pick up any cutlery that you drop to the floor. 2. Soup spoons generally come in two shapes – one is shaped like a round bowl, and the other is shaped like an egg. 3.

To avoid hiding a utensil under the rim of a plate or bowl, lay it approximately one (1) inch away from the plate's side. To eliminate fingerprints on the handle, hold flatware by the "waist," the area between the handle and the eating end of the utensil. Elbow room requires a minimum of 15 inches between place settings, or approximately 24 inches from the center of one place setting to the middle of the next.

When I teach my quickbread unit I like my students to know the function of the basic ingredients they are working with.

In order to do this, I like to do a mini-pancake demo made up of rounds. Each round adds a new ingredient to the mini-pancakes. Students must taste test the mini-pancakes during each round and try to figure what the purpose or function of the basic ingredient is and describe the pancake’s taste, texture and appearance.

After sharing their guesses, students create a foldable of ingredient function notes and then apply it to the pancake demo in a follow-up review.

Estimated Calorie Needs per Day, by Age, Sex, and Physical Activity Level - 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines - The total number of calories a person needs each day varies depending on a number of factors, including the person’s age, sex, height, weight, and level of physical activity. In addition, a need to lose, maintain, or gain weight and other factors affect how many calories should be consumed. Estimated amounts of calories needed to maintain calorie balance for various age and sex groups at three different levels of physical activity are provided in Table A2-1. These estimates are based on the Estimated Energy Requirements (EER) equations, using reference heights (average) and reference weights (healthy) for each age-sex group.

For children and adolescents, reference height and weight vary. Estimates range from 1,600 to 2,400 calories per day for adult women and 2,000 to 3,000 calories per day for adult men. Table A2-1.
