How do you eat fried mushrooms?
Finger food? Or knife and fork. Which is "proper?"
I'm asking because I've always considered them finger food. Today I had lunch out with some friends at a rather nice new place in town. Some of us shared a plate o fried mushrooms as an appetizer. One person used her knife and fork, most of us used our fingers. But I noticed one or two people switched to knife and fork when they saw the one woman eating them that way.
So which is right? Am I a heathen with poor table manners? Be honest, I can take it. Or was our friend being a bit "hoity-toity". Again, be honest, I'll never tell her what anyone said. . . ..
