Fork with Spoon or Knife?
March 14, 2007 1:30am CST
I've been to a lot of countries lately and I've noticed how different cultures are. I was raised using a spoon and fork when eating (not only for soups), seldomly using a knife. I can even cut my food to smaller pieces using just a spoon and fork! When I visited other countries, forks and knives are prepared on the table so I usually ask for a spoon to make my eating easier. :p What about you guys? Prefer a knife over a spoon? Or a spoon over a knife? The shovel or the ax?

Yap, being in a country where we are used to using fork and spoon, it was an eye opener when you go to other countries and see that they use a fork and knife. But go to a nice hotel, and dine there, no dinner spoon is provided either!!! I recall having a recent dinner in a cruise ship, and my friend was laughing at me when I panicked when I saw lots of forks, knife, spoons on my table, trying to recall the dining etiquette I was taught years ago on which to use first!!! Currently I am now used to the fork and knife, well, better than asking for a spoon, and be given a soup spoon (a bit wider... now that is a shovel!!!) Cheers!
