Le techniquê: How to set a table

Learn how to properly set a casual table for your dinner parties according to the etiquette. Setting a table nicely ensures that your guests will feel comfortable because they will have everything they need  in hands during a meal and to me, a casual table is the best because it's easy and not so fancy that could instead make your guests threatened but the number of silverware they see.
I'm a big fan of setting a big, colorful and wonderful table, it creates a happy environment for my guests and it goes along with an unforgettable meal. Theme tables are pretty fun too, trying to find a solutions to turn everything into a  certain theme challenges my creativity and to me that is always a fun thing to do.

I've been collecting kitchenware for years and I usually get it from everywhere, second hand store, trips, family and trash (yes, I've found some amazing stuff at my building's recycle area). 
To me a meal can only be considered a meal when the food requires fork and knife to be eaten because if you can eat it with your hands, then it's just a snack (this opinion only reflects occidental culture).


I hope this video inspires you to create special moments at home for your family and friends and that these moments become just as unforgettable as you are !

  2. So, in countries, such as India, where people sit around a table and eat their meals with their hands, you don't consider that a meal? Interesting.

    1. Good point. When I say that I mean in our culture, in South and North America finger food is junk food and that's what I mean. Eating a sandwich is not a meal and my opinion reflects the culture that I'm inserted in.

  9. Another good video clip. Great dinner guest. btw in England you finish by placing your knife and fork at 6 o'clock to show you are finished, but hey when a plate is clean you know they've finished ;o)

    I am a Culinary Arts instructor always looking for interesting ways to demonstrate/illustrate new techniques to my students. This table setting video is a fun way to introduce a topic that can be stiff and boring. We (my students and I) appreciate your bubbly personality and clear, concise explanations. Keep up the excellent work!
