SOUPS AND PUDDINGS
Soup spoons come in two shapes; the round spoon and the oval shaped spoon. When eating soup, the bowl should stay on the table. Do not lift the bowl from the table and drink your soup from it. You may tilt one side of the bowl from your side, to fill the last spoon of soup.
Soup is generally served after the second course. To eat soup you should pick the spoon on the right side of the cutlery placed near your soup bowl. When eating soup, you should push your spoon away from you starting at the centre of the bowl to the farthest edge and consume. Bring the spoon to your mouth and drink from the edge. Do not slurp. Keep the handle of the soup spoon towards you after you finish your soup.
Pudding indeed is a yummy and delicious food.
Pudding should not be confused with a dessert. They are entirely separate courses, though one can take the place of the other. Pudding is a sweet course, whereas a dessert consists of fruit or cheese.
To enjoy this delicious food you need to put your spoon into the pudding and not fill your spoon completely with the pudding. Just a bit of it needs to be taken on to spoon. To eat pudding you are usually given both a fork and a spoon. The pudding spoon is held in the same way as your knife, with the bowl of the spoon facing inwards and (for right handed people) is held in the right hand. The pudding fork is used as a pusher only. You do not put a pudding fork into your mouth. Using the fork, push a small portion of your pudding onto the angled spoon. As you lift the spoon to your mouth, tilt it a little, so the bowl is now facing upwards. When you have finished eating, the same rules apply here for placing your cutlery back on the plate.
At times the pudding fork and spoon are found above your plate, rather than at the sides, as the other cutlery.
