Knife and Fork
Posted by Mark on September 18, 1997 at 12:48:52:
Having spent time in England, I noticed immediately that in P&P2 they were eating using the British method. Today, over twenty years later, I still eat that way. It's far more sensible and efficient than the American method, particularly when eating meat. (I still don't pile up my veggies on the back of the fork, though).
My question is, is this accurate for the Regency Period? I know eating customs have evolved over time. I could see little difference between how they were eating and British style today.
Does anybody out there know?
