We used to have some confusion about the official, proper way to set a table. A few years ago The Seattle Times ran this so I snipped it out and keep it with my china.
The photo is pretty self explanatory.
One thing we always argued about was which direction the blade of the knife faced.
Also if you can’t read the text in the photo it says the dessert fork or spoon goes above the plate and the glass on the left is a water goblet while the one on the right is a wine glass. Incidently, there are red wine glasses (even distinctions between Bourdeaux and Burgundy wines) and white wine glasses if you want to be particular.

I am pretty excited about a new discovery recipe for our upcoming book. Last year we had a neighbor friend introduce us to popovers.

This is a big deal because the old recipe I used for the large popovers was ALOT of work which means I never made them.
