The history of tableware

The history of tableware

Whether it is a knife, fork, spoon or plate in the tableware, it is an extension of the hand. For example, the plate is the expansion and extension of the entire palm; and the fork represents the fingers of the entire hand. Due to the progress of civilization, these many figurative tableware gradually merged and simplified. For example, in China, only chopsticks and spoons were left in the end. Sometimes there are small dishes. In the West, up to now, there is still a table full of tableware when eating, such as large plates, small plates, shallow dishes, deep dishes, forks for salads, forks for meat, spoons for soup, Spoons for dessert, etc. It shows that in terms of food culture, the West not only started late, but also progressed very slowly.
