History of cutlery essential for French cuisine ②

Good evening. Between restaurants.

Last time, about the history of knives and spoons

I told you.

This time it was hard to accept,

I would like to introduce the history of folk.


Why, like knives and spoons,

Was it simply not accepted by people?


Now you ca n’t eat without a fork,

It is normal to think that

Don't eat by hand in medieval Europe!

It was a recognition.


What is at the root is

“Food is a gift from God,

It is legal to eat by hand.

Using a fork is contrary to providence. "

It can be said that it was the teaching of religion.

To change this way of thinking that is rooted in people,

It means that it took a long time.


Manners change in each country and time.

Enjoy the meal with everyone,

This is to keep the surroundings uncomfortable.


If you care too about manners,

I can't eat delicious food either.

Wear basic manners and feel free

I hope you can enjoy meals between restaurants.


If you do n’t know something or are worried,

Please feel free to ask the staff.


The staff will be happy to help you during your happy time.
