Mealtime is the perfect time to relax and enjoy your family, friends, and favorite foods. But if you’re worried about what’s being served – and whether your knife and fork skills are up to the challenge – we’re here to set you up for mealtime success.
With a few tips and tricks, you’ll be able to handle main dishes like steak, chicken – and even ribs – no matter your level of vision.
A good way to begin is to practice with easier cuts of meat – without bones – like slices of ham or turkey, boneless chicken or steak, or even hamburger patties. That way, you can perfect your knife-and-fork technique before you try something more complicated. And practicing on food without sauce or gravy helps you stay neat.
