Do you know which side of the plate the silverware is supposed to go on? What's the proper way to chow down on that steak? The short answer: It all depends on your culture. For example, Americans typically use a food-cutting style called the zig-zag, where eaters actually switch which hand they're using for their utensils. Other countries don't use silverware at all.

From deciding when to throw a dinner party to delicious and interesting dish ideas, these videos will pave your path to gourmet dinner greatness.
