How to eat Spaghetti ?
The first time Mr. G took me to Italy to present me to his family, I saw how people even kids manipulated with elegance a fork and winded up the Spaghetti. I had always seen people cutting them and eating with the fork or even with a spoon.
In Italy Spaghetti are served with a fork and a spoon in restaurants (for tourists) Italians eat Spaghetti with nothing more than a single fork.
Catch a few strands of spaghetti in your fork. Point your fork into the side of your plate.
Turn the fork to "wind up" the spaghetti, lift the bundle into your mouth. Tourists turn them on the spoon.
It was always very funny to see tourists eating Spaghetti ! Some lifted their plate up to the mouth and shuffled and sucked the Spaghetti into their mouth.
One day we were in a very beautiful restaurant, right at the Garda Lake. It was full and the couple besides us ordered Spaghetti. When they arrived the man tried to wind them up and looked around how the others did. Whatever he tried he didn't make it, they always fell back into the plate.
Suddenly he put his hand in the pocket of his trousers, looked carefully around as if he wanted to hide something and suddenly I saw a pair of scissors in his hand, quickly pulled out a bundle of Spaghetti, cut them into small pieces, looked around again and put the scissors back.
We laughed our heads off especially because the guy looked very posh and behaved badly with the waiter. The waiter had seen this manipulation too and smiled at us and blinked with an eye !
Before pretending to be a VIP better learn the way of eating in a foreign country !
