Etiquette Boss: Eat foods correctly
Baked potatoes: Do not cut baked potatoes open at the table. They can be cut in the kitchen and served open on the plate; if not, open with a fork and your fingers. Butter is added with a fork instead of a knife. However, if the potato is to be eaten with the skin, cut with knife and fork before eating.
Pits, seeds or bones removal: Any stone or seed, in such foods as stewed prunes or cherries, which are eaten with a spoon, should be returned to the plate on the same spoon.
Anything that needs to be removed from the mouth at the table should be taken out with the same utensil used to insert it. Other pits that are inserted by hand can be discreetly removed and placed on the appropriate plate.
Olive pits are placed on the bread and butter plate, but those of grapes, peaches and other fruit, on the fruit plate. If none is provided, all seeds can be placed at the edge of the dinner plate.
