How to hold and use chopsticks

Confucius once said: "Eating is the utmost important thing in life."

hold chopsticks like this

In the east, without chopsticks you cannot eat, so this is an important skill to learn. Fortunately eating with chopsticks is not that difficult to master.

Rest the end of one chopstick in the 'V' shape made by your thumb and forefinger. Support the chopstick with your ring finger and little finger. You will never need to move it, so it sits totally still in this position.

Hold the other chopstick like a pencil. This is the one that does the work and you move it just like moving a pencil around- easy.

When eating chinese and japanese food, use chopsticks for a more authentic dining experience.
