Did my heart sing when I opened the Wall Street Journal this morning and read the column “The Cranky Consumer” by Peter King, titled “Lessons in the Art of the Meal.” King reviewed four business-dining courses online or on DVD. One of the courses is my DVD, Dining for Profit, which is set in a swank country club on Hilton Head Island, S.C., where I advise four diners on the art of the meal. According to King, “The real-life setting and Ms. Ramsey’s gentle Southern drawl make the 40-minute course, which costs $49.00, easy to watch and easy to listen to.” He even touted the tip on not shaking the sugar packet when your coffee arrives.
Dining for Profit is available on DVD through The Manners Store. If you order your copy between now and the end of the month, you will also receive a complimentary copy of my booklet, 85 Tips for Dining for Success. The DVD will take a few days to arrive, but the booklet will be in your inbox before you can say, “Pass the cream, please?’ Why wait? Order now.
