    Default Do you know how to use chopsticks?

    I actually learned to hold them properly only in my 6th grade, for like I guess 7 yrs or so of my life I was holding them wrong.

    I use them quite often but they still make my hand hurt if I've been holding them long.

    I worked at a Japanese restaurant for year (yes, a big blonde gal, go figure!), and the cooks bribed me with shrimp, but I HAD to use chopsticks...

    No, I hate them. Knife and fork is so much easier! Plus I don't like chinese food so I dont really have much of a need for them

    I didn't learn much Japanese when I lived there, but a lady I know
    told me I can use chopsticks better than most young Japanese kids.

    I'm a chopper master! I think I taught myself when I was younger. I used to try and force the rest of the family to use them too to be all authentic but I just got upset when they wouldn't. I must admit it is a bit tricky with the rice.

    I'm the kind that likes to shovel loads of food in at once so chopsticks would just kill me!! I have tried using them before and it'd be a fun thing to know how to do it but I just can't...

    How are you supposed to eat rice with them anyway? One grain at a time??

    I can actually pick one grain at a time but that's not how you should normally eat rice Just pick a biteful with them.

    Ye but they'd be dropping all over the plate and by the time the chopsticks reached your mouth there'd probably only be like 3 or 4 grains there! It'd take a whole day just to eat some rice! No wonder most chinese people are thin, because they spend all their time chasing their food around the plate!!

    Japanese rice (and Chinese too I guess) is pretty sticky, much stickier than the rice I make into a risotto anyway. But I have to admit that at the sushi restaurant I do have some trouble elegantly dipping my sushi in the soya sauce.... I usually end up with the little bowl full of rice grains and the soya sauce all over the table

    Hahaha, I'm the same, but in Chinese restaurants here they give you a fork and spoon. I can't even cope without a knife so I try to cut with the side of the spoon and end up flinging chicken over everyone

    Barbs, Chinese/Thai/Indian rice (long grain) tends to be less sticky than Japanese and Korean rice (short grain)
