The Art of Setting a Table

Johan Gyllenbrok, Christofle’s North America Retail Director, will deliver a fascinating presentation on the art and history of table setting. Johan will demonstrate how to set the table according to the menu, explain the function of different tableware, show the differences between French, English, and American table settings, and share the history behind specific customs and tableware. You will leave thoroughly prepared to select, lay, and use flatware to enhance any dining experience.
