How to Eat With Chopsticks



Just as an FYI for those who love Asian food as much as I do. For more information, click here or here or here. The above is a more authentic, traditional way, while the bottom figures are a little easier for beginners. (Thanks for point it out, folks!)



Hold one chopstick between your thumb and middle finger. Position the chopstick so that it lies at the base of your thumb (on the joint) and at the lower joint of the middle finger. This chopstick shouldn't touch the forefinger.

 
Place the other chopstick between your thumb and forefinger. The side of the chopstick should rest against the tip of your thumb; the top of the chopstick should rest against the pad of your forefinger. Be sure the tips of the chopsticks are parallel.

 
Keep the first chopstick stationary as you practice moving the second chopstick toward the stationary one.
