Millions of Brits embarrass themselves in posh restaurantsJune 17th, 2008 - 12:49 am ICT by ANI
London , June 16 (ANI): They may love the thought of dining in posh restaurants, but for millions of Brits the experience can be a really embarrassing one since they dont know what to order or which cutlery to use for main course or the dessert.
With chefs like Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay gaining the limelight, a large number of diners want to try top restaurants. But after getting there, they are a bunch of confused souls, says a new survey.
The study, foodie festival Taste of Britain, showed that 59 percent of diners prefer to have food that they have tried before and avoid taking any kind of risk, reports The Sun.
Almost 18 per cent of diners are so embarrassed by their lack of knowledge, that they order the house wine rather than asking for advice. Nearly eight percent have clearly admitted that they have used the wrong cutlery.
In fact, only four per cent Britons would choose a French restaurant for a first date as they are completely unaware of what is on the menu, revealed the study. (ANI)
