Charcuterie Etiquette?

LearningHow | Jan 29, 2011 02:31 PM

Having come from an Asian background, I have to admit that most of my previous "dining out" experiences have been either asian restaurants or the type that you'd find in any North American chain-type restaurant.

Now that I've started branching out, I've always wanted to order a charcuterie plate but haven't simply because of the fear that I would not know what to do with it when it came!

Do you put the meat on the bread provided and eat it like an open-faced sandwich?
Are you allowed to pick it up with your fingers?
Do you put it on your plate and then use a knife and fork?

I'm totally lost and I've already tried googling the answer with no results...
