I always got it in my hair and down my front:o


That happens to me even when I'm NOT eating with my fingers :D


Chopsticks are fun too. I'm still learning so when I use chopsticks, I find myself using my fingers about half the time to help grab the food. Hehehe!

Absolutely. I'm not very good at chopsticks either so I always go for noodles over rice :)

I like the variety. I like using fingers, chopsticks, naan/bread/poppadums, forks, spoons depending on the food.

Me too cherry!!

I like eating with my fingers, although I tend not to do it when dining with others for reasons of etiquette.

Chopsticks are great to eat with, I mastered how to use them when I was quite young. Asian restaurants are still my favourite places to eat (aside from designated veggie/vegan places).

I'd love to travel to India some day to sample some vegan cuisine. I have been to the well Gujarati restaurant in Leeds called Hansa's, which is excellent, but would like to try the same thing in India itself.

Gujrati/South Indian menu is not HOT and spicy as Rajasthani/North Indian menu. Gujrati dishes usually are added with White Sugar in India.Gujarati Dhokla(Khaman) is very tasty.

At dinner, we usually have our main dish, with a big plate of salad in the middle to share. We eat our main with our cutlery but eat the salad with our fingers.


I used to like eating salad with my fingers at restaurants because they always leave the leaves too huge to tranfer fork to mouth.

I don't mind eating with my fingers after a good hand wash.. Its a lot comfy, quick and easy. The best choice for a mechanical life-style. :)


Chopsticks are fun too.
Not for me. :o I have tried chopsticks before. Its hard. But, I love to stick them up the sides of my mouth and imitate a walrus.

Eating with fingers is fine but holding ones knife like a pen is not.

Hemlock - cutlery snob!

Chopsticks are fun! I sometimes use them on American-type noodles, just because it amuses me...

I like things I can eat with my hands best, generally. I rarely eat soup, but I do use spoons for that, ice cream, yogurt, and cereal! (Vegan versions) I use a fork regualrly, but rarely require a knife since going vegan. When I'm alone, I use my hands too much though, even for things I shouldn't, like salad.

Could you not just drink from the bowl when "eating" soup? You know,just pick it up with two hands? And slurp away!

Finger food is also the best food for disabled and elderly people who can't use a knife and fork without difficulty. I'm serious, some elderly people have such trouble eating with knife and fork that they don't get to eat properly. Try cutting up food when your hands are deformed by arthritis. People caring for elders have published research papers on it.
Also knife and fork is culture-specific. Some cultures use nannbread and other wraps to eat with, some use fingers as a scoop by custom.
