Chopsticks 101

Chinese, chopsticks are called fai jee, which means "quick little boys". With a little practice you'll find that chopsticks are surprisingly easy to use, and they're just right for plucking the perfect mouthful of Chinese food. Start by placing one chopstick through the crook formed by your thumb and index finger. Let the stick rest on the tip of your ring finger.









Now insert the second stick above the first one, and hold it the way you would hold a pencil.












The idea is to hold the first stick still while you move the second stick up and down, bring the tips of the two sticks together to pick up the food.











Remember, practice makes perfect. If at first you don't success, stick with it!
