I was used while eating to use both spoon and fork. But when I moved with my husband's place I noticed people using only fork. I am only using fork every time I eat since everyone do that. At first, I find it hard but later on I get used with it. Spoon...fork...or both? Which one do you use when you eat your meal? Thanks!

In my country, esp. when at home, we usually eat using our hand. I prefer using my hand to eat. But in some occasion we use both spoon and fork, and rarely using knife..

Hi gloriastax!In my country too we eat with hands, especially the dry food.Wahing hands is a must before eating.I believe that the touch of food on the fingertips stimulates certain nerves which help in stimulating tastebuds too.Dont know whether it is true.My granny always says that.

It's weird, because spoon and fork never make a combination for me. For a course, I take either only spoon or fork and knife. So in fact I use all of three. The first choice is used only for the soup and the yogurt. The second can be replaced by a pair of chopsticks for asian dishes.

Well i am still using spoon and fork but i don't mind if i have to use fork for life. lol! Do you still eat rice? I think it's quite difficult to eat rice using a fork especially when they kind of separate then making a mess on your plate. I think can manage to eat using fork but for now i guess i have to use spoon and fork while i'm here in the Philippines.

mostly I use a fork for every thing I eat unless it's got a lot of liquid in it, then I use a spoon. I had a brother-in-law that would only use a spoon because he didn't think that you could get a fork clean enough in between each prong.

In my country we only use spoons for soups. the main dishes are eaten with fork and knife to cut. Only little children use spoons to eat but it´s considered bad manners if they don´t learn to use the fork after a certain age. It´s cultural, I suppose. I´m very clumsy with chopsticks. Have a nice day

Never heard about it...I mean usually we will use a fork here..and only will use spoons for soups, hotpot and such things. So we usually combine forks with knifes. Is there a possibility to combine Spoon with knife? lol I don' know The only time we use spoon and fork together is when we eat spaghetti...so we use the fork first...take some spaghetti with it and put the fork on the spoon and then turn the fork while it's on the spoon until the spaghetti won't drop from the fork anymore...and then put the fork to our mouth...lol Did I really describe how to eat spaghetti right now?!
