However you hold your cutlery matters not a jot, if you achieve the objective of dividing and transferring food to your mouth, without spreading too much of it about.After all the Americans do seem to have a different style to ourselves.At home, I do tend to wipe my finger round the plate to get the last dregs of the sauce and have occasionally been known to lick my knife, but would never do those things when eating out or at a friends.
if you're sitting in a restaurant, and someone chews too loudly, it'd be rather embarrassing....also, people who can't hold their knives and forks properly. I accept some people may have been brought up to do it a certain way, but then it comes a certain age, where you've gotta realise you've got to eat the proper wayhow many of you are noisy eaters and have bad table manners...honest....It's sometimes easier to put down your knife and then switch your fork to the other hand, so you can shovel the peas against something else on the plate, thus ensuring they end up on your fork.The fork should not be used as a scoop but held so that the points of the tines face VVVVVVVEating for DUMMIES - available at all good bookshops ;)Many manners are missing these days and if its a first date at least dont drink tea from the saucer!!.action_button.action_button:active.action_button:hover.action_button:focus.action_button:hover.action_button:focus .count.action_button:hover .count.action_button:focus .count:before.action_button:hover .count:before.u-margin-left--sm.u-flex.u-flex-auto.u-flex-none.bullet.
