How To Eat Bread Politely

There is one bit of etiquette revealed on the book titled "Elements of The Table." If you are a highly mannered person, this might be some help :)

"If you're always confuse as to which bread plate is yours, reach the plate to your left. Also, rest your buttered-up knife on the bread plate.

At a formal dinner with lots of rich courses, the plate-and butter-are often dispensed with. Then it is OK to place your dinner roll directly on the tablecloth, above the fork, where the bread plate would usually be."
