We are having a dilemma and as you may note, it has to do with dinner forks. We purchased a full set of everyday lagostina flatware as a gift for my parents. The dilemma?? The forks don't pick up the food - they are too dull, or just may be cut in a shape that doesn't support picking up food.
Although we all could use to lose several pounds, my parents have purchased other everyday flatware with the same results. My mom today actually said that she may need to go to garage sales (she has never been to one) to get some vintage forks that actually pick up food.
