From time to time CHOW's resident etiquette expert, Helena Echlin, asks our readers for some advice. She has an interesting question from a reader right now, who has a puzzling set of friends. They are compulsive hosts, very generous. But they can't seem to accept a return favor.
Read on for the whole question, and please add your two cents! Helena will include some of your answers in her response at CHOW next week.
