Brief History of Bamboo Chopsticks
Stephanie Butler, the author of "A Brief History of Chopsticks," shares that chopsticks started in China over 3,000 years ago, first as cooking tools and later as eating utensils. They became popular for eating when people began cutting food into small pieces that were easy to pick up. Confucius, an ancient teacher, liked chopsticks because they were not sharp like knives and kept dinner peaceful.
Different places in Asia have different styles of chopsticks. For example, Chinese chopsticks are blunt, and Japanese chopsticks are different lengths for men and women. The Japanese were also the first to make disposable bamboo chopsticks. Chopsticks work well with Asian rice, which is stickier than Western rice, so it's easy to eat with them.
