Is there a name for this style of feeding oneself?

I can't figure out what board this should go on, so I'm posting it here.

I know a fellow who eats his dinner (and perhaps other meals as well) in an unusual way, and I'm wondering if anyone else has ever seen this, and if it has a name or is identified with some particular culture:

what he does is, every forkful has a little of each item on the dinner plate. So for expl let's say he has on his plate steak, string beans, and mashed potatoes. He cuts a piece of steak, puts it on his fork; adds a few strong beans (perhaps using his knife to get them on the fork), and then add adds a little mashed potato. Thus, every mouthful has a little of each item--and to my mind, the taste of any individual item is obscured, at best.

Anyone have a name for this, or any observations on it?
