First Date Cutlery Supposedly Makes Dinner Less Awkward


I don’t know about you, but I hate being fed by anyone except myself.  Got something tasty on your plate? I’m reaching over and snagging it, thankyouverymuch.  Luckily, I’ve been very fortunate in my dining (and dating) partners, and haven’t needed to slap anyone. Yet.  But I’ll tell you who I do want to slap: the inventor of First Date Cutlery.

First Date Cutlery is designed by Cristina Guardiola, who claims the set responds “directly to appropriate advice in Debrett’s Etiquette, enhancing the prospect of correct use and diminishing that of an unfortunate faux-pas.” This eliminates any concern for etiquette, and allows both parties to relax and “focus less on formality.”

Oh but wait. It gets better. Because if you manage to make it through dinner without your date running away, there’s the dessert spoon that’s “made for two people sharing one dish”. Barf.

FDC-Lady-Being-Fed…I’m pretty sure if I’m trying to figure out how to use my weird sideways spoon, I’m not relaxed or enjoying my date.  But maybe that’s just me?

Pig’s feet, frog’s legs, and tripe are delicious child’s play. Which isn’t to say she doesn’t love a great steak. Because she does. With frites, please.
