How To Eat...

...pasta? I had a random thought...what is the correct way to eat pasta? Me love pasta, especially spaghetti bolognese & carbonara...Yum...So I searched online & found these:

1. Never eat pasta with a spoon, it's considered bad manners in Europe. Use a fork ONLY.
2. Never cut it up. It's already in the right length (10 inches long) so deal with it.
3. How to pick up the bloody spaghetti then? Well...
  • Push the spaghetti towards 1 side of the plate. Use the fork & push a few strands of spaghetti to the other side of the plate.
  • Twirl the fork vertically to get a nice bundle of spaghetti wrapped around the prongs of the fork.
  • You may opt to twirl the spaghetti against the concave surface of the spoon.

4. Absolutely no slurping/splattering is allowed. Respect the noodle.
5. Chew your spaghetti when it's in that cavern of a mouth. People do choke from spaghetti.
6. Don't swallow the fork.

Now that I know & you know how to eat pasta the right way, let's not embarrass ourselves, shall we? :D
