Sisters in etiquette

August 9, 2009 



Bianca Roels, 13, left, giggles as she closely watches her fraternal twin, Madison, hesitate as she attempts to place silverware properly in a place setting during the etiquette lesson at the week-long summer cooking camp at Classy Kids Cook in Cary on Tuesday. The five-day camp, which was called Tour de France and focused on French cuisine, includes daily etiquette classes which stress dining skills. It is one of many programs offered at the culinary and etiquette school. Students, who range in age from 7 to 14, discuss the use of each utensil, table manners and how to properly set a table as a part of the camp. When asked about the most challenging aspect of the class, Madison cites "having to share with others." To learn more about the school visit
