The fork is an ancient agricultural tool. After many centuries, no one thought that it could be used for meals. Hold the food with a fork and cut the food with a knife. The basic action is “hold the knife in your right hand to cut the food, and then use the fork in your left hand to fork the food.” Press the left end of the food with a fork, fix it, and cut a bite-sized food with a knife along the side of the fork. The fork can pick up the food directly and send it into the mouth. People who cannot cut the food smoothly with the correct posture and the right angle must first correct their posture. If the elbows on both sides are too high, the angle of the knife and fork will be too large, and the knife and fork will be upright; if the elbow is too low, the knife and fork will fall down, so there is no way to cut the food properly. The correct posture is: relax your shoulders and wrists, keep your arms close to your body, and keep the angle between the knife and the plate at about 15 degrees. This will not only cut the food easily, but also the posture looks more elegant. The placement of knives and forks on the dining table is fixed. Left-handers can swap the positions of knives and forks when using them. However, after the meal is finished, it is still necessary to place the tableware in the normal position, just to avoid the trouble of the service staff.
