Alyssa quickly raised her hand before digging into the desserts before her. "Professor, when a woman has to leave the table, she excuses herself. All the men at her table have to stand when she gets up, and when she returns, they have to stand up again. Usually the gentleman she is with will pull back her chair and she sits down and helps pushed it back it. If she had come alone, then the gentleman sitting next to her will do that, or sometimes, if one of the waiters is standing nearby, he will do it. "

Minerva looked at the desserts she was already so full that she felt her dress was beginning to become tight, but how could she say now to those wonderful looking things. She smiled as she took one to try. Then she put up her hand. "Professor the correct thing for the boy or I mean male to do is stand or rise as the lady leaves or returns to a table." Minerva turned back to her yummy dessert and began to eat.

It was that time, her second favorite course...she loved the sorbet the most but dessert was always amazing. "Okay now onto our dessert course..." and with that long white plates with little shot shaped glasses flew in and levitated. "this is a fun course...it can sometimes be cheesecakes or pies or cobblers or even ice cream, but we put together something special for ya'll." She flicked her wand and the plates landed in front of the students.

"This is a special dessert medley so that you can try five different types of Italian inspired Muggle desserts..." She started picking up each shot glass off her plate and as she did the same glass rose up around the room slightly. "The first one is Chocolate Mousse with Dark Chocolate Cookie Crust, followed by Strawberry & White Chocolate Cream Cake, and next is Limoncello Mousse with Vanilla Cookie Crust, then Dark Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse & Caramel Cream, and finally Amaretto Tiramisu with Almond. There is just enough for you to kind of taste and see if you like them." she said excitedly...

SPOILER!!: DESSERT!!!! (Desserts spelled backwards is stressed)




"Go ahead and dig in..." she said picking up her dessert spoon and taking a bite out of the Strawberry & White Chocolate Cream Cake glass on her plate.

"Here's another question, during the meal, if a woman, or girl, gets up to leave the table for any reason, what should the men do at the table when she leaves AND when she returns?" she asked the class watching them eating.

OOC: Remember to raise your hand before you answer. .And as always remember she is always watching you! Enjoy the dessert medley....it's making me hungry in RL...haha...we are almost done with the lesson.


Alright desert time! The Ravenclaw started to smile but he could feel there was something odd about his mouth. His tongue was tingling like crazy now. Discreetly he raised his fingers and gingerly touched his lips, feeling it to be very warm and… swollen? How? He glanced at the girls beside him, wondering if any of them had a mirror. He picked up his dessert spoon, wondering if he could use its shiny surface to check what was wrong with himself. But at a formal dinner setting? That would be rude wouldn’t it?

The Professor asked another question and started to raise his hand in reply. Wait, his hand has rashes… What? When did that get there?

“Ge’lmen shtand when uh ladeh shtands, an’ ‘elps ‘er to ‘er sheat w’en she rechurns…” he said trying to answer the question. Parts of his face was starting to itch too, and clenched his hands together to resist the urge to SCRATCH.

It was Amelia's favourite part of the meal, and she was totally enjoying it. Even though she sometimes gave Zayden a hard time, she loved desserts. :33 And she totally wished that she could get get another helping now. But alas it wasn't going to happen.

She raised her hand now. "The man is supposed to stand up and pull a woman's chair out when she leaves the table. And stand up and pull her chair in when she sits at the table."

Vlimia grinned excitedly. Dessert time! She had to admit that Chocolate Mousse & Caramel Cream sounded the best to her. But they were all going to be delicious... she just had to make sure she didn't spill anything on the brand-new outfit she had bought just for this lesson. Her parents would never buy her something red or gold, let alone put them together! It would be disgraceful to the all-Slytherin mania they had. Oh well, she was a Ravenclaw, why not break a few more rules while she was at it? Oh! A question! Vlimia's hand shot up.
"Well, gentlemen should stand up when she leaves and returns, and the one closest to her should push her chair in when she leaves, and pull it out for her when she comes back." Vlim said once chosen. She highly doubted that any gentlemen at her table would do that. Ever.
Vlimia surveyed the desserts in front of her, and ate a little of each at a time, trying to determine the ones she liked and disliked.

Eliza put her hand up. This dessert was very filling. It was nice, but there was only so much she could eat, it made her think of that start of term feast, when she'd met Conrad and they'd both had their hunger in common, it made her giggle slightly. "Professor, when a female leaves the table, a male should stand, as he would when a female joins the table." she answered.

This was the last course, wasn't it? He sure hoped it was....oooh, but lookit! Tiramisu! He was tempted to try that one...plus, the almonds reminded him of Stryker. Man, he missed him so much.

Hand raised in the air again, "We stand, of course. Both times." As far as helping her with the chair...he wasn't sure about it. He was mildly distracted by dessert...and took the Tiramisu one...just to try it...

Melanie took one of the dessert cups, unable to control herself. She didn't much care which one she got, they had all sounded delicious. She found herself holding something with what looked like strawberry sauce on top though, and that was alright with her!

She raised her hand and said, "When a woman gets up to leave, the men are supposed to stand. I believe all the men are supposed to stand when she returns as well, and someone sitting next to her is supposed to pull out her chair for her."

Angelina was so full already, she didn't know if she could have dessert. Thats the problem with dessert, if after everything, and you get too full before! She didn't want to be rude, or miss out on the different types so she just took one Caramel cream one and a strawberry. Once she began to start eating the strawberry one she feel inlove with it. No dout the caramel cream must be good as well!

Have way inbetween eating her first one she raised her hand and said, "Professor," Angelina stopped and wipped her mouth off with her napkin, so she didn't have Strawberries and White Chocolate Cream all over her face, she continues, "Don't the men or hentlemen get up and pull the chairs out for the lady."

Now that was actually a fairly easy question, considering that Sierra went out to eat with her father pretty much all the time. She swallowed a bit of food then raised her hand. "Well, I'll tell you what my father does. He stands up when the woman goes to leave, and then he stands up again when she returns," she said.

Actually, there had been that one time when Sierra had returned to the table, unexpectedly, and caught her father kissing the woman she'd thought, at the time, was just a very good friend. She hadn't known they were together, but...well, it was pretty much crystal clear after she'd returned to that table.

Sophia actually raised her hand to answer that question. This term was going to be about bold moves. Think Vivi! She glanced over at Greingoth and added, "My father does the same and when the lady comes back, he also pulls the chair out for her."

After enjoying a few bites of the delicious dessert, Eino wiped his mouth with the napkin and raised his hand. "The gentlemen are supposed to say 'bye' when she leaves and 'welcome back' when she returns." Though he didn't know what they were only supposed to do that to the ladies. He always said both things to everyone.

Gemma looked at the girl with her left eyebrow raised...she couldn't tell from the girl's tone of voice if she was being rude or genuine...she was hoping on the genuine but she had a feeling from the way the first question was phrased that it was the other..."Well, I have to admit that I don't appreciate you questioning my lesson..." she said tilting her head to the left slightly, "And although I shouldn't have to explain myself, I will answer your question. There are a few changes between etiquette in both worlds, but either way etiquette is an important part of the Muggle world and the wizard world and not many people know etiquette in either world..." she paused and then continued, "And next time you would like to question my lesson subject please don't do it in the middle of my class...minus five points from Slytherin for your inappropriate questioning of my lesson." she said a little out of breath from her frustration at the question.

SPOILER!!: AMAZING!!!

Unable to stop herself, she first dug into the beautiful looking Dark Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse & Caramel Cream. And it not only looked beautiful, but tasted just as delicious! And this was just one of the five desserts. Merlins knew she wanted to eat it all but had really no space left in her tummy!

So, taking a short break, she raised her hand up and answered, "Professor, the men, I mean the gentlemen.. Well, they should get up and pull out chairs for the lady." One of the perks of being a lady was to get herself pampered!

"A gentleman, should when a Lady stands from her chair or so much as enters a room should also stand themselves. In finer establishments then gentleman entering with the lady, or the one closet to the lady in question should pull the chair for her, and push it in for her when she moves to sit back down." She smiled softly.

Now, she was going to learn something else - how about what others thought was Gentlemanly?

Finally the dessert was brought out. The desserts looked so good! Especially the chocolate ones. Silvia didn't care much for almonds, but she loved chocolate more than anything. So when it had been placed in front of her she immediately reached for one and ate a small spoonful. It tasted even better than it looked.

Silvia looked up when the professor asked her next question and after she swallowed a bite of mousse she raised her hand "Aren't the men supposed to help pull out and push in the woman's chair?" she answered.

She slowly ate it enjoying the flavor because, there really wasn't much there. She raised her hand in between bites and said, "He is supposed to stand as she leaves and stand when she returns." She took a sip of her tea and continued to enjoy the last course of the day. No dinner in the great hall for her.

She stopped eating and her hand went up to answer the question.. Did she have to? I mean in DESSERT? ''The, men are expected to stand up for the woman, once she has left the table! When the return however, they do the same but usually pull the chair out for the Lady,'' Hmm! LuLu, wouldn't want them to stand up but admittidly she would be.. quite flattered..

"Professor, if a lady leaves the table the men are supposed to stand both when she leaves and when she returns." That was a lot of standing and especially if all of the girls in here needed to go to the restroom.

She was grateful that the steak was done. And thankful that nobody had noticed her avoiding it and called her out. It was rather rude of her not to have let Professor Cerulean know about her dietary restrictions before class. Presley did roll her eyes at the next question, but she raised her hand anyway. "All gentlemen seated with the lady should rise when she excuses herself and when she returns." And offer her help with her chair if they knew she was sitting-down challenged like Presley seemed to be.

She thought she might as well answer, what she thought, was the question. "I believe the gentleman have to get up with her and pull out the chair, and push her back in when she comes back. But professor, what if the lady doesn't come with anyone, or if she sits at a table were she doesn't know any of the guys?"

Then she knew the correct answer. Izzy raised her hand before speaking. "Professor the men are to stand up politely whenever a lady leaves the table," Izzy said remembering the times from those fancy formal dinners. "Then when the lady returns they are to stand again and one of them is to pull her chair out for her." It was at least the sign of respect she knew from when she was with her extended family at dinners. Her cousins or cousins boyfriends were always super polite.

Dessert time!!!

Jonathan wiped his mouth with the table napkin before the desserts were given to them. He listened as the professor explained more stuffs they should learn about dinning in fancy formal parties. And as soon as the desserts landed in front of him, Jonathan smiled.

Hearing the professor raised a question, Jonathan took a small bite from the deliciousgood looking cake. Yummy! --- And now to answer, Jonathan raised his hand "Preferably, when girls excuses themselves to go out, men should stand up." He has seen that most of the time when he was younger. "... and when the lady comes back, the man stands up again and maybe, escort her to her seat" that could be right, right? He's not sure though. Sooooo.... maybe.

Alex raised her hand to answer the Professor's question. "When a lady or girl leaves the table, a man should stand", Alex said. "He should also stand when she returns and help pull out or push up her chair."

Setting his spoon down on his plate, he raised his hands to answer. "I believe it is polite for gentlemen to stand up when a lady leaves or returns to the table. We just have to be careful not to let our napkins fall to the ground and look silly bending over to get them." Embarrassing. "Would it be rude to put the napkin on the table our your chair in such cases?"

When they arrived at her table, Kurumi gently set it to the side closer to Jonathan in case he wanted it. She couldn't just let it go to waste like that. The house elves had worked too hard for it.

But...she really was going to explode if she ate any more.

Ignoring the dessert for not, Kurumi looked up when the next question was ask. Hmm...maybe this was the same custom as it was in her country? Everything else had been, well, not despite her growing up non-magical. Kurumi raised her hand. "A gentleman is expected to stand up whenever a lady leaves the table or comes back," she said. It was the same with her family's dinner parties and had been the case at one sort of formal party at Jonathan's. Kurumi's father often called it a choreographed way of saying, 'I think you're worthy of me getting to my feet.'

He always said both things to everyone.

The other students' questions made her forget about the question from the young girl, "Ya'll are absolutely correct. It is proper in both the Muggle AND Wizard World, thus being important to learn in MUGGLE STUDIES, " yes so she slid that last in for a reason, "for the men to stand up when a women leaves the table and returns to the table. It is also proper for the closest man, which is quite often the woman's date, to pull out her chair as she returns to the table." she said with a little smile.

She waited until everyone was done with their desert and then she said, "Once you are completely done with your meal, it is proper to finally place your napkin on the table. You don't want to do it before you are completely done with all of the courses..." she said taking the napkin out of her lap and placing it on her table. She waited for the students to follow suit. Once they had, she flicked her wand and slowly the plates and silverware still left on the table levitated and flew out of the room.

"Well, thank you all for coming to our fun and filling first lesson! Please feel free to stay for a little while and share some conversation with your friends. Please keep you eyes open on the board for our homework assignment that will be posted shortly..." she said with a smile and a little bow of her head.

OOC: Okey dokey, we are officially done. I'm going to leave the thread open until tomorrow so if anyone wants to catch up they can. Just put Catching Up or something like that in the Title of your thread. I'll post homework on the boards when I close the thread. Thanks everyone! I hope you really learned something even in RL!

Nate politely dabbed at the corners of his mouth with his napkin before ditching it on the table. He slid his chair back a little, but not too much. He wasn't leaving yet.

He looked around at his table mates with a grin in his face. "It's odd," he said out loud, to no one in particular, "That although I'm muggle-born I've never learned any of this. It's always been 'Oh, just shut up and eat!' with my family..."

He really hoped somebody joined in the conversation. He didn't want to be the first to leave. That would be rude.

There are a few changes between etiquette in both worlds, but either way etiquette is an important part of the Muggle world and the wizard world and not many people know etiquette in either world..." she paused and then continued, "And next time you would like to question my lesson subject please don't do it in the middle of my class...minus five points from Slytherin for your inappropriate questioning of my lesson." she said a little out of breath from her frustration at the question.
Wow. I can't believe anyone would be so bold... and rude! he thought. If you have a problem with a Professor, go to them and discuss it in private. Not in front of the whole class. Overall, he thought it was an excellent lesson. He had learned so much and would hopefully now not eat as much like a pig as he did before. There was more to being a wizard than loud bangs and puffs of smoke.

Oh, they were done now? Actually, maybe that was for the best. I think I just gained twelve pounds in the span of two hours. Yes, he was definitely going to be doing hard workouts once Quidditch season started. And those poses from DADA would help them on their way to greatness... and sore muscles.

He slowly stood up, making sure he wasn't about to slip into a food-induced coma. He placed his napkin gently on the table as instructed. He pushed in his chair and made to leave. "Excellent lesson, Professor! Thanks for the delicious meal. You were a very gracious host." He bowed slightly and then headed back to the Common Room, where he planned to sleep off the feast.

Oh! It was over? This wonderful dinner party was done with! Ira certainly didn't wish it. She wanted more of the delicious dessert but then had only a limited space in her stomach. Oh well.. she sighed.

She followed suit as the professor placed her own napkin on the table, signalling the end of dinner. And then the plates and all silverware was gone! Ira slowly stood up, not wanting to fall off her high heels. And also because she was so full! She said to professor, "Thank you Professor. It was a great lesson!" meaning to keep such lessons more often! "I really enjoyed it.. and.. Good bye professor!"

Glenn dabbed at the corners of her mouth with her napkin then set it down on the table, just like the professor had told them to do. She desperately wanted to lean on the table on her elbows but refrained from doing so, sitting slightly further back in her seat instead.

She turned to the boy sitting next to her and smiled, "Me too! Except I'm a half-blood. Our family's idea of a night out was dinner at the local pub." She laughed and brushed a couple of strands of curly blonde hair from her eyes and back into her side ponytail. It was starting to irritate her, the make-up and hairstyle. After she left she'd take all the make-up of and get changed into her pyjamas or something.

Well, that was...

Treyen blinked as the student spoke to Cerulean and was secretly glad that it hadn't been a Hufflepuff. Not for points, but for the disrespectful manner in which the Professor was treated.

OKAY!

THANK YOU!

They could leave? Awesome. Treyen was thankful for the fact that they were on the first floor...and getting to his Common Room was a very easy task. He stood up, and placed his napkin on the table before bowing to Cerulean, "Thanks for the lesson, Professor." However...he felt like he wasn't going to eat for a whole week.

But...his eyes caught Keefer...

"Hey, Keefer! Wait up!" And he pretty much followed the Hufflepuff Captain out the door. It was better not to go by himself, honestly, in case he could walk no further.

Off to the Common Room, then.

Beatrice finished her meal just as Professor Cerulean had also finished their lesson. She carefully placed the napkin on the table and rested her back on the chair. It was a good lesson in general. There was no dancing so she liked it, not to mention that the food was pretty sumptuous.

She wanted to enjoy and have a little chat with her friends around but her feet was now aching because of the shoes she was wearing so she decided against it. Standing up, she headed to where the Muggle Studies Professor was. "Professor Cerulean, thank you for the lesson," she curtsied. "And for the meal." Then she headed out of the splendidly decorated classroom. Time to take off the heels!

"Can anyone name ONE of the seven courses of a meal?" she asked as she flicked her wand to clear the screens hanging from the roof. "And don't forget to raise your hand before answering please."
Tayla raised her hand eagerly. "The dessert is one of the seven, Professor. Usually served last," and with a smile she added, "It's also often my favourite."

And of course, they all knew the best course, dessert..."You are all correct and have covered quite a few of the courses..." she said with a flick of her wand. Instantly, a list of the seven courses appeared on the screens.

1. Appetizers
2. Soup
3. Salad
4. Sorbet to clear the palette
5. Pasta, Fish or Poultry Dish
6. Red Meat, Fish, or Poultry with Vegetables
7. DESSERT!!!!

She smiled at the students, "If you haven't already, please grab your napkin and place it in your lap. It should stay there for the remainder of our meal and should be used occasionally to wipe your mouth."

With a flick of her wand menus dropped from the ceiling and landed in their laps. "We are going to begin our seven course meal. As we go along, I'll introduce you to some different rules of etiquette when eating. Feel free to ask any questions that you think of. "



"Please glance over the menu..."she said excitedly and then once she felt like they had all had ample time to preview the menu, she flicked her wand and the menus flew away. "Okay let's get things started..."

She flicked her wand in a circular motion and the appetizer flew into the room and levitated above each of the tables. "Can anyone tell me what the proper direction we should pass the tray of brushetta around the table is?"

SPOILER!!: Brushetta



Tayla raised her hand, though unsure of her answer. "Erm...clockwise, Professor?"

Quote:

"Please just grab one bruschetta off the plate. The plates have been charmed not to fall" she added before someone got nervous about that. "Because the bruschetta is a bread you may eat it with your hands....and place it on your bread dish..."

She flicked her wand and the menu appeared on the screens again and the appetizer was crossed out on the list. "Okay now onto to our next course...and no worries about not being able to finish all of the courses. Each course isn't a huge serving but just enough...." she said moving her wand to signal the cups of soup to come in. Each one flew in and levitated above the tables. "Now before we get our next course I just want to remind you of some common rules that apply in any eating setting...." she said with her sweet smile.

"Number One...never talk with food in your mouth...Number Two....Do not put your elbows on the table. This is rude and can knock items off the table...Number Three...Don't blow on your food, just let it cool down while you have conversations with other guests...and Number Four...If you ever get something that you don't like. It is always customary to take atleast one bite to try it out....unless you are allergic and then you just don't touch it...." yes those were some simple and good ones to start with.

"So before the soup is delivered, can anyone tell me from which side the food will be served to you? And when you done with a course, which side the dish will be removed from?" she asked hoping her question made sense.
"I think...it's served from the left side...no right...and then taken from the left..." Tayla replied as she raised her hand - although she was always confused about which side was which.

"Yes the waiter would serve you from the right side and take your plate from the left side...so always try to lean away just a little bit so that it makes it easier for the waiter to reach your serving setting..." she flicked her wand and the cups of minestrone levitated down to their right shoulders and then levitated to the serving plate. "You need to use the soup spoon..." she held up the spoon from the right side of her plate and all of the soup spoons on the table rose up slightly. "to eat your soup."

SPOILER!!: Soup




She gave them a little bit of time to eat their soup, and for her to eat her soup, and when it seemed like a majority of them were done she flicked her wand and the next course, the salad, in little glasses, flew in from a side door and levitated on the side of the room.

SPOILER!!: Salad




"Okay let's go on to our next course, our fruit salad. It has strawberries, pineapple, melons, blueberries, peaches, and watermelons diced up very small." She flicked her wand and the soup cups were removed from the table on the students' left side and instantly the glasses of fruit salad levitated around the students' right side and landed. "Make sure you use your salad fork" she said holding up the little fork causing all of these forks to raise up a little bit, "for the salad course."

As the students began to eat, she decided it was time to pose the next question, "Can anyone tell me what you do with your silverware after you have used it....not at the end of the meal but...for instance, after you butter a piece of bread, what do you do with your butter knife?
Tayla tasted the soup and smiled. "This is delicious!" Then once the salad was served, she took her fork and ate a bit of it, too. "Mmm!"

Hearing the professor's question, Tayla raised her hand again and answered, "You have to put the butter knife back on the plate, horizontally I think. And when you're completely done, the utensils are placed together on the plate."


Quote:

Always rest forks, knives, and spoons on the side of your plate or in the bowl or cup." she picked up her used fork from her plate and demonstrated for them on the screen. "You should always place it on the outer rim of the plate if you grab a drink or wipe your mouth with your napkin or something similar. You should never let it rest gangplank fashion with half of it on the plate and half of it on the table."

She glanced around the room to see if the majority of students were done with the fruit salad course. "If you'll just place your salad fork in the cup, when you are done. This will signal that you are done with this course..." she waited for the students to do that and with a flick the cups where removed on the left side of each student and floated out as the next course flew in.

"This is the sorbet course...it looks like ice cream but it's more tart than that..." she paused and then remembered an important warning, "Don't eat it too fast or you'll get a brain freeze...this course is to clean the palate for your main courses..." she had to admit that this was her one of her favorite courses...she loved sorbet.

SPOILER!!: Sorbet




When it seemed that the majority of the students were done, she flicked her wand and the empty glass bowls disappeared and the next course came in.

SPOILER!!: Lasagna Course...you'll just get one of the circles




She flicked her wand and the next course landed onto their serving plates. "Alright this is our first main dish. You can use the Fish Knife for this course..." she said picking up her knife, as the other utensils had, this fork raised up from all of the tables slightly. She flicked her wand and baskets of bread flew in an landed in the middle of each table.

SPOILER!!: Bread Sticks...Yummy




"Now it is important for you to pace yourself as you eat so that you don't finish before others are halfway through. So if you are a slow eater, try to speed up a bit on this occasion so you don't hold everyone up. And if you are a quick eater, slow down." she said eying her lasagna...this was going to be so good and the smell of garlic was just amazing!!! One of her favorites.

"In the next course, we are going to have sourdough rolls. Can anyone tell me what the proper way to eat bread is?" she asked motioning for them to start eating their lasagna...then she took her first bite.
"I wish classes always had delicious food like this!" Tayla couldn't help saying. She was really enjoying herself. The lasagna was delicious and so were the sorbet and bread sticks. Raising her hand, she answered the professor's next question. "Bread should be eaten by breaking off a small piece first. And the whole bread should never be buttered at once. You only butter the piece you're about to eat."

Quote:
Originally Posted by Lezleighd View Post

It is never appropriate to cut a roll with a knife." she said with a smile. "When the rolls are served in a basket, take one. Place the roll on the bread plate and then use your butter knife to grab a little slab of butter for your bread and place that on your bread plate a well. You should only butter the piece of bread that you are fixing to eat. You don't butter everything at once."

The professor waited for everyone to finish up the small lasagna dish and then she continued. "If you will place your fork on your plate when you are done..." she waited for the sounds of forks being placed on the current plate and then flicked her wand to take the current plate out and bring the main course plate in.

"Okay, it's now time for our Main Course." she flicked her wand and the plates were placed on the table and then baskets of rolls flew into the room and one landed on each table.

SPOILER!!: Main Course and Rolls






"Now when you are eating a steak or any type of meat that needs to be cut, the proper way to do it is to cut one piece at a time. You only want to cut what you are going to eat in one bit. Your slices should be little and bite sized..." she demonstrated at her table and it played on the screens for everyone to see.

"Everyone feel free to start eating the steak and vegetables...we are almost to our final course, dessert..." she said motioning for them to start eating.

"So what is the proper way to signal to waiters that you are done with your food?" she asked the students.
"The waiters will know that we're done by the way we place our utensils on the plate," Tayla replied as she raised her hand. "The knife and fork are placed together on the plate diagonally. The blade of the knife is turned inward and the fork tines downward - although I think the Muggles in America leave the tines facing up."

Quote:
Originally Posted by Lezleighd View Post

"The proper way to signal to the wait staff that your are done with the course is to rest your fork, tines up, and knife blade in, with the handles resting at five o'clock an tips pointing to ten o'clock on your plate. And any unused silverware is simply left on the table. But we want to keep our napkin for right now because we still have one more course left."

She picked up her knife and fork and placed them on her plate to show them on the big screens. She waited for everyone to follow suit and then with a flick of her wand the steak plates, bread dishes, and basket of rolls raised up and flew out.

It was that time, her second favorite course...she loved the sorbet the most but dessert was always amazing. "Okay now onto our dessert course..." and with that long white plates with little shot shaped glasses flew in and levitated. "this is a fun course...it can sometimes be cheesecakes or pies or cobblers or even ice cream, but we put together something special for ya'll." She flicked her wand and the plates landed in front of the students.

"This is a special dessert medley so that you can try five different types of Italian inspired Muggle desserts..." She started picking up each shot glass off her plate and as she did the same glass rose up around the room slightly. "The first one is Chocolate Mousse with Dark Chocolate Cookie Crust, followed by Strawberry & White Chocolate Cream Cake, and next is Limoncello Mousse with Vanilla Cookie Crust, then Dark Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse & Caramel Cream, and finally Amaretto Tiramisu with Almond. There is just enough for you to kind of taste and see if you like them." she said excitedly...

SPOILER!!: DESSERT!!!! (Desserts spelled backwards is stressed)




"Go ahead and dig in..." she said picking up her dessert spoon and taking a bite out of the Strawberry & White Chocolate Cream Cake glass on her plate.

"Here's another question, during the meal, if a woman, or girl, gets up to leave the table for any reason, what should the men do at the table when she leaves AND when she returns?" she asked the class watching them eating.
Tayla picked up her dessert spoon excitedly, but just before she tasted any, she raised her hand and answered. "Whenever a lady leaves the table or returns to sit, all men seated with her should stand up." And with that, she dug in!

It is also proper for the closest man, which is quite often the woman's date, to pull out her chair as she returns to the table." she said with a little smile.

She waited until everyone was done with their desert and then she said, "Once you are completely done with your meal, it is proper to finally place your napkin on the table. You don't want to do it before you are completely done with all of the courses..." she said taking the napkin out of her lap and placing it on her table. She waited for the students to follow suit. Once they had, she flicked her wand and slowly the plates and silverware still left on the table levitated and flew out of the room.

"Well, thank you all for coming to our fun and filling first lesson! Please feel free to stay for a little while and share some conversation with your friends. Please keep you eyes open on the board for our homework assignment that will be posted shortly..." she said with a smile and a little bow of her head.

OOC: Okey dokey, we are officially done. I'm going to leave the thread open until tomorrow so if anyone wants to catch up they can. Just put Catching Up or something like that in the Title of your thread. I'll post homework on the boards when I close the thread. Thanks everyone! I hope you really learned something even in RL!
"Thank you, Professor!" Tayla said with a smile. Finishing her meal, she did as Professor Cerulean had. "I love this class..." she thought happily.

ooc: 'Catching Up' posts in the spoiler. Definitely learned something new even for real life.

Kurumi sort of wrinkled her nose a bit. British non-magical people's fancy meals were so...complicated. It was almost more complicated that the tea ceremony that she sometimes had to perform when guests came over to her home. Her mother always insisted on it and just one finger out of place as you held the bamboo ladle or spun the tea cup too much so the design was not fully straight when handing over the cup and you were considered rude and your reputation ruined. But then, Kurumi became a little curious about the dining etiquette of other countries. Weren't there some where you had to eat with your hands? How were those different from what they had learned today? Some of the things they had done today would have been considered odd at a formal occasion back home, so Kurumi ventured up towards Professor Cerulean.

"Excuse me, professor," Kurumi said softly. "The etiquette we learned today...is this more something that is done in Europe or, um, more western cultures?" The wizarding and non-magical world were very very wide places after all.

Once Alyssa was finished with her meal, she delicately dabbed her lips with a corner of her napkin before folding it and placing it on the table. She then slowly pushed her chair and stood up and walked over to the Professor. "Thank you for the delicious meal and of course the lesson. It was really interesting to learn how Muggles eat at formal dinners. I'm definitely looking forward to your next lesson. Before I leave, Professor, will you need help cleaning up? I'd be more than happy to stay back and help you." Alyssa offered the Professor. After all she fed had them a great meal, the least she could do was offer to help clean up.
