Swedes Love the Knife and Fork

Jun 03, 2011 4 Comments by

They eat everything with a knife and fork. Seriously. Last night I ordered a club sandwich, at a British Pub no less, and what came was half a sandwich. No top bread, just the bottom. And it was overflowing. The only way to eat it? You guessed it, k&f.

Plus they have this amazing ability to build this great pile of food on top of the fork, which is upside-down, using the knife as their fingers. I’ve tried to replicate this act but only end up dropping my food all over the plate. And on one occasion my lap. I’ve come to the realization that it must be something learned from birth. And that’s why I can’t do it. Or at least it makes me feel better.

    I feel like this says something very profound about the Swedes, although I’m at a loss to say what that may be. Hilarious! I’m passing this on to Lauren DeSantis–she’s taking her cooking show there in July for a few days!
