Table manners – should you finish everything on your plate?

How much you should eat of any meal has a lot of cultural and regional variation. I was always taught to eat everything on my plate which doesn’t work very well when you go to North America and are served enough food for a small family on one plate.

Metafilter is a great site for discussions like this. The small fee to join requires you to think about what you say and prevents floods of spam or abusive comments without going down the unthinking and brutual real names policy of things like Google+’s and Facebook.
