Fumbling with chopsticks at lunch today, I began to wonder: at foreign restaurants in Asian countries, do they give out forks and knives? And do the patrons, used to their chopsticks, have trouble using them? Is there a learning curve for a knife and fork, like chopsticks? Do the particularly ill-adept ask for chopsticks to eat their steak with because they can't handle a knife and fork? Do they look at Western food and get flustered? Or is it all pretty easy?
