  • Wooshta...that's a tough one. Let's start with the fork in the left hand and the knife in the right. Not many people will notice if you pick up the wrong fork for whatever course you're eating. European rules mean that you should hold the fork "tines down" - think about a shovel held the opposite way you would use it to dig a hole. The knife in your right hand becomes the tool that you use to push everything onto the tines of the fork in you left hand.

    Practice, practice, practice. Eat a salad with your fork in your left hand and the tines facing down. Use the knife to push the lettuce onto the tines. Now do that again and again. Do it with fish. Practice cutting a steak with your knife in your right hand while the tines of your fork hold the meat down in your left. Pick things up between you knife and your fork the same way you would with chopsticks, but use both hands instead of one...

    You get the idea.
