“Highly recommended! While Lisa’s dining etiquette class meets virtually, it is live, interactive, and engaging. At times I forgot we weren’t all in the same room — which was a wonderful feeling during a pandemic. The course is a great value and I learned and retained a lot. The most enjoyable aspect is Lisa herself. I never felt judged by her when I was trying to use proper etiquette. Lisa’s ethos, which she models consistently, is that manners is about making others feel comfortable, which is such an important message right now. How we behave impacts others — even at the dinner table — and it’s so important to be welcoming, respectful, and to show up for our fellow humans, even if it’s virtually.”

I highly recommend Lisa Gache?s online dining etiquette course for adults. First off- online course is a bit of a misnomer- while the class meets virtually, it is live, interactive and engaging. Lisa keeps the classes to a nice size so that everyone can participate and at the times I forgot that we weren?t all in the same room- which was a wonderful feeling during a pandemic. My one question going into the class was how much of the actual knife and fork handling skills we?d be able to master virtually when Lisa wasn?t physically with us to correct us and it worked out wonderfully. The course is a great value and I learned and retained a lot. Lisa uses a conversational but structured style with visual aids and also provides physical demonstrations of technique which really worked to help me internalize the information we were learning. We went through techniques for eating different kinds of foods, how to dine in different situations, toasting, and even protocols to put in place in a post-covid world. I continued to learn more and more as the course went on and would take it again to be able to continue to practice. The amount of information there is to learn is endless and fascinating and Lisa give engaging and easy to understand explanations about both how to do things and why we do them a certain way. When I told people I was taking the class they asked if I would judge them on their etiquette the next time we met in person and the answer is NO- which leads me to the most important aspect of Lisa?s course that I enjoyed which was Lisa herself. I?ve met with her in person once and in the course and I have never felt judged by her when I was trying to use proper etiquette. Lisa?s ethos, which she models consistently, is that dining is about making others feel comfortable- which is such an important message to hear during a pandemic and the unrest going on in our country. How we behave impacts others- even how we behave at the dinner table and it?s so important to be welcoming, respectful and show up for our fellow humans- even if it?s virtually. I highly recommend Lisa?s class for the value, the information I learned and how enjoyable it was.
