French Table Manners Matter...

Jump to last reply

Recently whilst eating out in a restaurant my son said that in France it was considered to be rude to not use both your fork and your knife in combo when eating - to use just a fork, as many Americans do, was considered rude or crude - just not proper table manners.

I asked why was it rude and he said because of the way it messes up the plate, spreading food out around it rather than the French way of picking up food with both knife and fork in one motion.

So in France if eating with others try to do it the French way!

And the French also use bread as a mop - to mop up liquids and bits of food left on your plate.
