BBQ’s, picnics, and outdoor adventures, oh my! Summer tends to keep you busy outside, hence all the delicious meals as well. Learn the basics of finger food etiquette so you’ll be ready for all the finger-lickin’ food.
Eating foods with your fingers can be quite fun, but also tricky. Here’s the low-down of what you need to know before picking away:
- Always wash your hands before and after enjoying your delicious foods.
- Always have a napkin nearby. Sometimes, utensils are not offered, so it’s nifty to use a napkin instead.
- Some foods don’t require a utensil. Popular items include deviled eggs, roll-ups, vegetables with dip, olives, pickles, crackers, etc. For appetizer buffets that have serving platters, its best to use the serving utensils rather than your hands to pick up food.
- Lastly, if appetizers are served on toothpicks or skewers, pick them up by the stick.
