The Rite of the Fork

Just the FORK. No spoon, no knife.

With one or two ribs of your fork........

... hook a few spaghetti. The spaghetti must be long: never cut them in half before cooking.

Lift your fork, with the hanging spaghetti, out  of the tangle.

Place the point ofthe ribs in an empty  corner of your dish,

Start to twirl the fork.

Ready for your mouth.

According to the Galateo, it is allowed to use your finger to eat fish and chicken. Thus, pick one clam and bring it to your mouth to extract quickly  the muscle with care between your teeth.
