Passing Food at the Table

Serving platters, bread baskets, and other food items are always passed in a counterclockwise direction or to your right. This will help to alleviate any traffic jams.

Also, by receiving the food with your left hand, your right hand is free to serve the food, giving an accidental spill less of an opportunity to occur.
