Do you know how to use chopsticks? Using chopsticks is a “piece of cake” for Chinese people. But for westerners, it is rather difficult. Don’t take these two little sticks for granted. If you don’t want to go hungry, you are advised to learn to use them skillfully.

The first step is to hold them firmly. Put the stick on the middle finger and, with the thumb, press it firmly against the middle finger. Then the tip of the thumb and the index finger are used to control the other stick to form a pincers with the two sticks to pick up food. The first stick remains fixed and the other is maneuvered to hold the food against the first stick as it is lifted to the mouth.

The use of chopsticks has been a part of Chinese food culture. In fact, there is no single best method and many develop their own styles. As long as you can bring food to your mouth with the sticks, you are good!
