How to use chopsticks like a pro!
When you’re ready to eat up your noodle soup, try using your new giraffe chopsticks.
- Pop off the giraffe from the top. Hold one stick in the crook of your thumb with it resting on the third finger.
- Hold the other stick between your thumb and the first two fingers.
- Practice bringing the two sticks together as you pick up noodles.
- Eat the noodles in your soup with the chopsticks and slurp up the broth with a spoon
- Helping Hand – if you have a hard time holding the chopsticks, slip the giraffe on the top so the sticks stay together. Try it both ways. Which is easiest for you?
Capable of reaching deep into boiling pots of water or oil, early chopsticks were used mainly for cooking. It wasn’t until A.D. 400 that people began eating with the utensils. This happened when a population boom across China sapped resources and forced cooks to develop cost-saving habits. They began chopping food into smaller pieces that required less cooking fuel—and happened to be perfect for the tweezers-like grip of chopsticks. – Hungry History
