Men have used cutlery for thousands of years, from carved woods and bones to animal shells even horns, we have over the time improved from hand-picking foods to mouth to a classy and fashionable eating procedure of cooking and dining.
The word spoon is from Anglo-Saxon sponge meaning “a chip of wood” and the wealthy used it to show off, as late as the middle ages the common people still use their hands to eat.
Nowadays, you can dine on a wooden table handcrafted in Eritrea or an antic Victorian table that costs a hundred million dollars, you will agree with me that this will not in any way change the taste of the food just like driving in a Phantom will not shorten the journey, the guy in Mercedes will make the same trip in almost the same time but will not arrive in the same style.
Same can be said of dining experiences, eating with designer cutlery will not aid digestion but it will surely make you feel good. Trust me you’ll feel good when you dive into that barbecued chicken with a Versace fork and take a sip of red wine from a gold rimmed crystal glass.
Feeling good is not the end of this story it is perhaps the beginning–eating with designer cutlery will set you aside and make you unique when you invite your friends and associates over for dinner.
The first few minutes of your conversation will unavoidably be centred around the uniqueness of your table and the wares. At the time this subtle gesture is telling your associates that you a man or a woman of taste, it is unequivocally saying that you’ve “arrived” and you did in style.
You know what, success does not only attract haters, success attracts success too.
