Cutlery – how do you hold yours?
With the fork to the left and knife to the right of place settings, we are taught as kids to hold our cutlery that way around; in Armenia and Turkey, however, they lay in opposite positions, so what is right on a global scale? Or does it depend on being right or left-handed?
With cutlery deeply ingrained in our social etiquette after hundreds of years of use, we are not likely to give up our eating implements any time soon – but that’s not to say that we’re against TV dinners, sitting on the sofa with a tray on our knees and just a fork, no knife in hand. It’s nice to keep traditions, hold on to our heritage and partake in occasional fine dining. Even sitting at the table for family dinners, we can raise the next generation the way that we were, knife and fork in hand.
