Which ta­ble man­ners are most im­por­tant?

We ex­pect our ta­ble to be re­spect­ful, and not to ag­i­tate too much. David Isaacs, Syd­ney, Aus­tralia

• Keep­ing one’s mouth closed while chew­ing. Michael Olin, Holt, UK

• Po­lite­ness. Ed­ward Black, Church Point, NSW, Aus­tralia

• Ob­serve care­fully and fol­low. Tom Short, San Rafael, Cal­i­for­nia, US

• While some, like only eat­ing off the back of a fork, are coun­ter­in­tu­itive, the one that pro­hibits the throw­ing of food has merit. Lawrie Bradly, Sur­rey Hills, Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia

• In our house, never at­tempt to use a knife and fork on a cha­p­ati. Su­nil Ba­jaria, Brom­ley, Kent, UK
