Chopsticks, the traditional eating utensils of East Asian countries, are now widely popular the world over. When eating with them, it is best to use your thumb and finger to manipulate the two sticks into a triangle shape; this will help you to pick up any type of food including rice and sushi rolls. It takes a little bit of practice, but once you learn how to use chopsticks, you may never go back to regular utensils!
