1. 餐具的擺法有嚴格規定。雖然一般香港餐廳未必講究,但正式來說,吃魚、肉、甜品的刀叉分成三套,還多一隻湯羹。紅酒白酒清水分三隻杯。每款餐具的擺法和用法,可花上數篇文章來討論。簡單來說,牒左方放叉,右邊放刀。較大的用來吃主菜(魚或肉),較小的吃前菜;右邊還有湯匙,匙身較圓;牒上方放甜品餐具。用膳時要注意不要用錯餐具啊。

2. 用膳後,刀叉的擺放方法也是一種non-verbal的溝通方式。例如刀叉頭互相對著,造成90度角代表暫停用餐;刀叉豎起平放牒上代表用膳完了;而刀叉平行橫放在牒上代表該餐非常好吃。所謂「野可以亂食,餐具唔可以亂擺」。

3. 中國人的請客文化在英國也有。中式做法通常是在結帳時吵鬧一番,搶著要埋單。英國人比較文靜低調,通常是去洗手間的時候順便結帳的,這樣就能保持低調同時顯示心意。

4. 香港人流行相機食先,任你吃串魚蛋都要先影一輪。英國人則倒過來,用餐時使用電話是無禮表現,甚至隨身用品都不會放在桌上,例如錢包、鎖匙。好好和身邊的人享受眼前的美點,比起Candy Crush過關更重要吧!

5. 英國人對食材與餐飲的配撘也很講究,所以紅酒白酒清水都分三個杯。看電視電影常以紅酒配海鮮,以為是絕配,其實非也。你可以親身比較一下,紅酒配海鮮會令腥味更突出,反而白酒就可以提升海鮮的鮮味。所以,如果你的Main course是魚,白酒是較好的選擇;相反,如果你點了牛扒,紅酒就最適合不過。當然,如何配撘沒有絕對的答案,不過能夠反映出你的口味和追求。

你可能會問,為何英國人咁麻煩咁多餐桌禮儀?其實一餐晚飯的過程中包括了Primary, Secondary和Tertiary production,由準備食材,烹飪到端上牒都有悉心安排。適當的禮儀能反映出你的文化修養和內涵,也是對餐廳、廚師甚至侍應的尊重。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
