Should You Eat With Your Hands and Eschew Cutlery?

“Me Grok”

DailyMail has an interesting article that promotes eating with your hands instead of forks, knives, and spoons. After all, caveman Grok didn’t have eating utensils.

Those who are a stickler for etiquette should look away now.

That’s because we’ve all been dining the wrong way and should be eating with our hands, according to a psychologist.

Professor Charles Spence, from the University of Oxford, said giving up cutlery is the secret to enjoying food.

He says eating with our hands can ‘heighten the dining experience’ – even for meals like pasta and messy curries.

The professor also claims that hand-feeding improves food flavor and texture while having myriad health benefits.

PS: I rarely use “eschew” in conversation because few folks don’t know what it means. In general, I eschew obfuscation.
