Victoria Pratt read The Amy Vanderbilt Complete Book of Etiquette from cover to cover at age 12 and has been obsessed ever since. In her spare time she bakes, researches her genealogy, and reads up on the history of things like the Bouquet Toss. Her mother still needs to remind her not to put her elbows on the table.
Jaya Saxena is a lifelong New Yorker and writer who received a copy of Tiffany’s Table Manners for Teenagers when she was about 10, which taught her “not to leap at your food like an Irish wolfhound.” How gauche. She is a Staff Writer at The Toast, and the author of two forthcoming books, Dad Magazine and The Book of Lost Recipes. She can write an earth-shattering thank you note, but hates getting cards.
