I’m sure you’ve gone on first dates before. And I’m sure you’ve learned the hard way that first dates usually go worse the more you like the person you’re with. Most dates involve eating a meal – and where there’s food, there’s bound to be accidents – usually the messy kind.
With this in mind, Cristina Guardiola redesigned your typical utensils to come up with First Date Cutlery that’s guaranteed to get you through that first date without using the wrong knife or using the dessert spoon for your soup.
Cristina explains that the set adheres “directly to appropriate advice in Debrett’s Etiquette, enhancing the prospect of correct use and diminishing that of an unfortunate faux-pas.” So with etiquette worries out of the way, you should be safe, right?
The soup spoon encourages you to drink from the proper side of the spoon, thus reducing messy spills, while the knife and fork are magnetic, which allows you to place them neatly on the plate so you can take breaks to chat with your date.
The dessert spoon that comes with the set offers up a little reward too, as it was apparently “made for two people sharing one dish.” Well, I honestly think that’s moving a little too fast for comfort, but hey, I’m not one to judge.
