Table etiquettes in France - anything to watch out for those from New Zealand?

johung | Aug 15, 2014 03:01 AM

Hi guys,

I'm curious about whether there will be any table etiquettes in France that may differ from New Zealand? Something which may trip visitors up? I didn't grow up with cutlery but am now okay and comfortable with it when eating out with native-born Kiwis.

For those of you not familiar with NZ the etiquette a are fairly similar to English, only more laid back and occasional use of knife on wrong hand or not using the knife at all are all fine.

Thanks.
