Etiquette Question of the Day

True or False?

When dining continental, it is correct to shift the fork from the left hand to the right hand when cutting.

 

Continental Style Dining

 

False!

Continental dining keeps the fork in the left hand for cutting and eating. This is different than the American, or "Zig-Zag", style, in which the right hand cuts the food with the knife, which is then placed along the top of the plate, blade facing inwards. Then the fork is passed to the right hand to bring the food up to the mouth.
