Did you know that forks used to be considered quite scandalous? According to the Smithsonian "In 1004, the Greek niece of the Byzantine emperor used a golden fork at her wedding feast in Venice, where she married the doge's son. At the time, most Europeans still ate with their fingers and knives, so the Greek bride's newfangled implement was seen as sinfully decadent by local clergy. 'God in his wisdom has provided man with natural forks—his fingers' one of the disdainful Venetians said, 'Therefore it is an insult to Him to substitute artificial metal forks for them when eating.' When the bride died of the plague a few years later, Saint Peter Damian opined that it was God's punishment for her hateful vanity." My takeaway is that we can enjoy eating with our fingers. (The photo is of a pair of 9th CE bronze forks from an area in present day Iran). Relax and enjoy the rest of your holiday by grabbing a drink and checking out one of these ebooks of fantastic food writing:
