Once it was a sign of how well bred you were: whether you knew your asparagus fork from your dessert fork. That's surprising when you consider that the fork is the upstart of eating utensils, arriving relatively late on the dining scene. In medieval times, it was used in Europe only as a serving piece. While Italy adopted it for eating during the Renaissance, England really didn't accept the newfangled implement until the second half of the 17th century.We no longer have separate forks for every sort of food; most place settings include only two, a dinner fork and a fork that can be used for salad or dessert.
