Words of Wisdom from Amy Vanderbilt, Part 2

In this highly advanced and modern world, where culture and sophistication is dying at the speed of a three legged gazelle on the Sarengeti, it’s good to know that we can still find prose of the socialite to help us reach new vistas of gentility and refinement.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to brush the dust of our copy of Amy Vanderbilt’s Complete Book of Etiquette and learn how to live right. Tonight’s bite of sensibility comes from page 235 under the section how to eat various foods.
Bacon:
Very crisp bacon may be eaten in the fingers if breaking it with a fork would scatter bits over the table. Bacon with any vestige of fat must be cut with fork or knife and eaten with the fork.
Our modern example of the proper eating of bacon comes from the guys at EpicMealTime. Where would be we without them?

We hope you have enjoyed looking at proper etiquette. Next time, we eat business.
But, you know, properly.
