Cultural Notes
  • Traditionally, at dinner, Chinese people sit in a circle at a round table while the dishes are placed in the middle of the table to be shared by all. In more health-conscious environments, only “public” chopsticks and spoons are used to remove food from the plates in the middle of the dining table, so as to prevent any possible spread of diseases. In China, a standard banquet usually consists of four to eight prepared cold dishes, eight hot dishes, two to four whole-size showpiece dishes (such as a whole fish, a whole chicken), as well as soup, steamed rice and pastries, and fresh fruit for dessert.
  • Do you know the following dishes and vegetables?
  • What is your favorite dish?
  • Do you know its ingredients?
  • Talk about them with your partner.

  • 中华饮食源远流长。在这自古为礼仪之邦,讲究民以食为天的国度里,饮食礼仪自然成为饮食文化的一个重要部分。 中国的饮宴礼仪号称始于周公,千百年的演进,终于形成今天大家普遍接受的一套饮食进餐礼仪,是古代饮食礼制的继承和发展。 饮食礼仪因宴席的性质、目的而不同;不同的地区,也是千差万别。古代的饮食礼仪是按阶层划分:宫廷,官府,行帮,民间等。而现代饮食礼仪则简化为:主人(东道),客人了。 作为客人,赴宴讲究仪容,根据关系亲疏决定是否携带小礼品或好酒。赴宴守时守约。抵达后,先根据认识与否自报家门,或由东道进行引见介绍,听从东道安排,然后入座:这个“排座次”,是整个中国饮食礼仪中最重要的一部分。 从古到今,因为桌具的演进,所以座位的排法也相应变化。总的来讲,座次是“尚左尊东”、“面朝大门为尊”。家宴首席为辈分最高的长者,末席为最低者。 巡酒时自首席按顺序一路敬下。若是圆桌,则正对大门的为主客,左手边依次为2、4、6……右手边依次为3、5、7……直至汇合。 若为八仙桌,如果有正对大门的座位,则正对大门一侧的右位为主客。如果不正对大门,则面东的一侧右席为首席。然后首席的左手边坐开去为2、4、6、8,右手边为3、5、7。 如果为大宴,桌与桌间的排列讲究首席居前居中,左边依次2、4、6席,右边为3、5、7席,根据主客身份、地位,亲疏分坐。

I`m very sorry about that.

I`ll return it to the kitchen and bring you one that`s well cooked.

I`ll`see to it personally.

We do apologize about this,sir.


Waiter, this tablecloth is a disgrace. It`s covered with soup stains.

I asked for well done, but my steak is barely cooked.

Look at these glasses. This one has even got lipstick on it.

I should think there is something wrong! My wife and I have been kept waiting nearly an hour for our meal.

It`s done just right this time.
