Date: February 20, 2015 Time: Noon Speaker: Ann Butler Topic: Dining Etiquette in a Business Setting for High School Students Organization: Dinwiddie Career and Technical Education Program Location: Dinwiddie Country Club, Richmond VA
More than 200 students in the Dinwiddie Career and Technical Education Program dined on a “proper lunch” at the Dinwiddie County Club and listened to etiquette advice from Chef Ann Butler, owner of Edible Education.
“While teaching manners to kids seems like a daunting experience for some parents and educators, I am always amazed and proud to see how beautifully the students respond to instruction,” says Butler. “It’s especially impactful when they are treated to a lovely meal in a beautiful setting — like they were at the Dinwiddie Country Club. There’s something about being in a fine dining room that just makes you want to behave properly.”
Butler annually presents this speech to the students of the Dinwiddie Career and Technical Education Program, as well as other community school organizations.

About Ann Butler
A former high school Culinary Arts teacher, Ann Butler was frustrated that her students were consuming Red Bull and Doritos for breakfast, but found studies that show, teaching younger kids how to prepare healthy foods would stick for a life time of well being – so she started Edible Education.

She is Jamie Oliver’s appointed Richmond Ambassador for the Food Revolution Day events having their joint video receive 1.3 million twitter hits; she was a National Business Women’s Owners “Rising
