Passing Dishes While Dining




Pass food from the left to the right. Do not stretch across the table, crossing other guests, to reach food or condiments. 



If asked for the salt or pepper, pass both together, even if a table mate asks for only one of them. This is so dinner guests won't have to search for orphaned shakers. 



Set any passed item, whether it's the salt and pepper shakers, a bread basket, or a butter plate, directly on the table instead of passing hand-to-hand.



Never intercept a pass. Snagging a roll out of the breadbasket or taking a shake of salt when it is en route to someone else is a no-no.



Always use serving utensils to serve yourself, not your personal silverware.
