The observation of French women eating cupcakes with a spoon at Scarlett’s unleashed many a tale of other foods we (barbaric?) Americans normally eat with our hands given the civilized (or silly?) French treatment.
All of the following fell to the French fork and knife: pizza slices, hamburgers, mini-muffins, fruit, bagel and lox.
The Antiques Diva tweeted an example today that takes the cake, however.
Yes. Apparently her French friend spooned peanut butter onto a plate (and not onto bread), then proceeded to eat it with a fork and knife.
Wow. Just wow.
I mean, sure, you can scoop peanut butter with a spoon. You may spread peanut butter with a knife.
But to eat just a mound of peanut butter with a fork and knife? Amazing.
Thanks everyone for your contributions!
I’m off to dinner tonight and will try to remember my table manners.
