When you are at the table, assuming you are right-handed, hold the fork in your left hand and knife in your right. With the tines facing downward, curving towards you, hold down the food you are cutting. Do not hold the knife or fork like a dagger. Place your index finger along the top of each utensil, holding each at the end. Gently, using a sawing motion, cut the food near the tines of the fork, so that you have one bite-sized piece. Lay the knife down, without allowing it to touch the table, and switch the fork, complete with food, to your right hand. Bring it up to your mouth, chew quietly, and swallow.
