The origin of the cutlery
The original origin of the knife and fork is related to the living habits of the ancient nomads in Europe. They immediately live with their knives and often cook the meat and cut it to eat. Later, after moving to settle down, Europe was dominated by animal husbandry, and bread and the like were non-staple foods, which were taken directly by hand. The staple food is beef and mutton. The meat is cut with a knife and sent to the import. After the city settles, the knife and fork enter the family kitchen, so you don't have to take it with you. It is not difficult to see that the knives and chopsticks used as the main tableware in the West today are very different. They are versatile and can be used to slaughter, dissect, and cut the meat of cattle and sheep. When cooked and edible, they also serve as tableware.
The history of Westerners using knife and fork as a feeding device is not too long. A missionary in medieval Germany dismissed the fork as a "devil's luxury" and said "If God wants us to use this tool, he will not give it." We have fingers.” Historian Rey Tanner Hill said: Forks used to be used in Europe and the Near East for many years, but only as a tool in the kitchen, the use of forks as a tableware is widely used from the 10th century Byzantine Empire. Start. When the fork first entered the upper class and came to the table of the famous family, many kings, including Queen Elizabeth I of England and Louis XIV of France, were still eating with their hands. Therefore, the history of the use of Western forks is no more than 1,000 years. Nowadays, the use of Western cutlery has been widely used. When eating a knife and fork, the right hand holds the knife, the left hand takes the fork, and the left and right open, generally can not fall over and grab.
