When you’re heading out to a dinner party or a meal at a nice restaurant, it’s good to know you can focus on the company and the conversation – and not how to handle certain foods with your eating utensils.
We’ve got a few tips to help you manage your soup and salad with skill, no matter what’s on the menu – and no matter your level of vision. Now, let’s get ready to eat.
We’ll start with the salad. It’s not easy for anyone to manage a large piece of lettuce without making a mess – but here are a few tips on how to cut that problem down to size.
First, it’s easier to cut up a salad before you add the dressing. That way, it isn’t too slippery – and your food stays on the plate while you move your fork and knife around. If you ask for your salad dressing on the side, you can always add it when you’re ready.
