When a chef has gone to the enormous effort of styling a plate to appeal to the eye as well as the palate, the least we can do is eat the food with the same respect it was prepared. Stabbing is just not on. That’s why chefs appreciate your using the Swip. It selects the morsel you want to enjoy and lifts it effortlessly off the plate.
Forks hold meat down well enough, and they get the food to your mouth, but they are little help when plating, and do not treat salads with the delicacy they deserve. Evolving menus require a more interactive eating tool.
Use the Swip for salads and sushi, certainly, but also try swipping up sauce.
