5 5 Food Food has always been an important part of society. Doing business will often use dining as a good way to communicate the business deal in a comfortable manner. Food can communicate things we do not need to say, such as… status, nationality, and identity.

6 6 Dining Out Dining Out, or Eating Out, is a phrase that means to eat outside of home, usually in a restaurant or other public place. In the past, only high society or rich people would eat out, but nowadays it is popular to dine out for business deals. Usually, business dining will be during lunch, because dinners are typically considered a time to eat with family in most countries. Is this the same in your country?

7 7 Dining Culture There are many things to know about dining with people from a different culture, but especially when those people are going to do business with you. For example, some cultures consider leaving food on your plate polite, whereas other cultures consider it rude. Some cultures will use only one utensil, like a spoon or fork, at a time, but other cultures will use both at the same time. What are the dining rules for your culture? Can you name some others?

8 8 Dining Culture Timing is also important to remember. Some cultures will serve all the food in a meal at the same time, so that the diners will be able to eat anything at anytime. But in most Western cultures the different parts of the meal are served at different times. For example, the starter is served first, the main course is served second, the dessert (sweet) is served third. There are always many differences between cultures, so always research the dining culture habits before conducting business.
