Good Morning!

Here’s a quick tip for you regarding silverware.

As you know, sometimes when you go out to eat, especially if you’re having a Chef’s tasting, there will be SEVERAL pieces of silverware in front of you.  I cannot tell you how many looks of panic I have received from fearful diners….here’s the thing: it’s just silverware!  No one is going to die and no one is going to get pregenant….so you’re good!

Rule of thumb: always start on the outside and work you’re way in.  THAT’S IT!

Now, if you ever find yourself with a piece of silverware that you have no idea how to use, here is how you handle that:   normally once food is served, people dive on in.  Instead of diving in, take a beat. Observe how your dinner companions are handling the questionable silverware and then you’ll know exactly what to do; (unless your companions eat like cavemen, then I would suggest asking your server…afterall, they’re the experts).


Thanks for reading.
