it was a nice party yesterday -- some friends, vegan food and... eating withoud forks and spoons. :) very funny and messy.

sometimes I like eating just with my fingers.

Sure..... I have no problems with eating with my fingers, though being vegan means I do eat more things that are easily eaten with a fork of spoon :)

I find that it's more fun if you eat with someone else's fingers. It's more messy, too.

What - you mean you don't get your friends to pick up piles of spaghetti and pile it into your mouth?

Must be just me then.

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.

Food tastes different when eaten with fingers. Sometimes it's the only way to eat some things :p

I eat with my fingers when it comes to things like cereal (I eat it dry), sandwiches, wraps, pizza, french fries, fruit, baby carrots ... things like that.

Some foods I eat with my fingers. Some I used a fork. I dislike spoons and only use them for cereal, puddings, soups, stuff like that.

I also eat with pita bread. Tear off a peice and scoup up my food.

My boyfriend is from Sri Lanka originally and I guess traditionally they all eat with their hands. He does. It looks messy but fun!

eating with your fingers is fun.. however, i must say that the grapefruit spoon is the coooooolest thing ever. there's like nine million things i can eat with it. :D

You may have heard the saying that "fingers were made before forks". I like eating with my fingers - depends on the food, of course. It's also good fun feeding the special person in your life this way :)

I agree. It makes it a whole lot more sensual. Alone or with someone!
Actually both :p Preferably with someone but sometimes alone is good too :D Happy New Year ;)

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!

I always eat with my fingers except while eating Rice with Dhal/Dal. I do keep Spoon in my plate. So it is mixed. Most people in India eat with the fingers only.

My stepfather is Indian. His family eat off washed banana leaves with their hands, they use chapatis for the messy stuff.
They did it really neatly but I always got it in my hair and down my front:o
Saves on washing up I guess :)

A lot of his relatives are vegan also because of their religion. Unfortunately my sisters (half sisters are omnivores), probably because they were brought up here, I'd always feel at home there tho' as everyone knows how to cater for vegans!
They must wonder why English women are such messy eaters though:D
