It’s easy to look like a primitive hunter as you hack away at your food with a knife and fork. But at dinner parties, at a restaurant or informal occasions, you’ll want to use these utensils in a classical manner.
Look at the photo below. This is how you need to hold a fork and knife in your hand. Left one for a fork and right one for the knife! In case you are a left-hander then reverse the order.
You need to first pull out a small eatable piece out of the dish. (The way you break a morsel from the chapatti!) So, for this, cut a piece with the help of knife while holding it with a fork (as has been shown in the figures given below).
Do remember that you don’t apply force to pull out a piece. It happens easily. Just hold a small portion from where you will start with the fork (face below) and start cutting it with a knife.
Now simply put the piece into your mouth as has been shown in the picture.
This is how you leave the table. An indication that you are done!
