    Question How do you eat your spaghetti ?



    As it came up in the tabla manners thread, I am interested to know how you guys eat your spaghetti. I most usually use a fork and spoon, and occasionally only a fork.

    I use a fork, twirl not cut, and occasionally a knife to push stray ends into place.

    I'm a twirler as well, though occasionally I'll get carried away in a style reminiscent of an I Love Lucy episode.

    The spoon is only brought into play at a nice restaurant, and even then I find msyelf using it reluctantly.

    When there is meat to cut, like chicken permesean or sausages, I use a knife, but mostly I only use a fork and twirl my spaghetti.

    When I was in Japan, I used to use a spoon when the sauce had a lot of liquid in it to not splatter because I heard that was the proper manner.

    I've seen a person who cut his spaghetti into a bite size with a knife and ate it with a fork in US.

    I normally eat spaghetti with a fork, but it depends on what's in it (i.e. meatballs, sausage, etc.).

    Gosh, this thread made me think of a documentary film I saw when I was a kid of the Italian spaghetti harvesters picking the spaghetti off the trees in Northern Italy.

    I mainly use a fork, but sometimes I have been known to put it on some toast and make a sandwich.

    This is a strange thread, but...

    I usually eat spaghetti with just a fork. Sometimes with the help of a spoon. If I have no choice, I'll use chopsticks, but as I am in the habit of slurping noodles that enter my mouth via chopsticks, it can make for a bit of a mess, so I really try to avoid it!

    If there is extra sauce after the noodles are gone, I'll use a spoon without exception to finish it off!

    I'm a fork man too! Half the fun of eating spaghetti is twirling it on your fork before shoveling it in your mouth!

    With a fork.

    And, I like to spend about thirty seconds before eating cutting it with a fork so that all my speghetti isn`t long flipping around on the fork splattering sauce as I twirl it. Sometimes I dice it too much and have to use my fork to scoop it up.

    I also feel unfullfilled if I don`t have garlic bread to go with my spaghetti. But, I hate it when my wife eats garlic bread because I can notice it on her breath. Oh, and a glass of red wine is always nice with spaghetti.

    In recent weeks I`ve begun adding a lot of Tobasco Sauce to my spaghetti when I choose to eat it with traditional tomato spaghetti sauce.

    Does anyone else put Tobasco on their spaghetti? or has ever tried it?

    I have to say I like the extra "zing" it adds.

    I found out that according to the Neapolitan habit, eating spaghetti with a fork and a spoon is perfectly polite, though not all Italian use a spoon.

    I eat spaghetti with a spoon and fork. I usually slice it into smaller pieces then eat it with a spoon and fork, because that's the easiest and most comfortable way imo.

    With a fork and spoon unless I have a bib sized napkin wrapped around me in which case I am quite happy to go fork-only and twirl away.
