Hi, I'm John Coletta. I'm the managing partner and executive chef of Quartino restaurant here in Chicago. We're located on the corner of Ontario and State street. Today we're going to talk about how to eat pasta by spinning it with a fork. Now there's two methods. The first method begins by taking the fork and just ever so easily putting it on to the plate. OK. And as you can see, you've completed the job. Now if we want even less, obvious take less. But the piece is not to be afraid of this. Anybody can do this. My kids do this all the time, and as you can see, it's easily achievable. Another way to do it is you take a spoon in your left hand if you're right handed, and now you place the spaghetti on to the fork and continue to twirl this. And as you can see, you've got the same result. The spoon acts as guidance, OK. The more seasoned pasta eater obviously wants to show off and wants to do this all by himself or herself. OK and you can see how simple that is, OK. And again it shouldn't be intimidating, OK. Don't consider using a knife by any means to cut the pasta,but continuing to twirl it will give you the results you're looking for. Should you have a challenge, take nice sized dinner spoon, you can see it helps to guide you. We'll do this here we go one more time. So we grab some pasta, and I've just tossed this pasta today with some butter and cheese. My kids love this, this is a real simple way to do it. And in fact I taught my children how to eat pasta and they've picked it up rather simply. OK so we got this. The one thing you want to make sure is that you eat the pasta. Boy that's good, hope you enjoyed the video. Again I'm John Coletta, I'm the executive chef and managing partner here at Quartino. I hope you enjoyed the wonderful videos that I've prepared for you, and I look forward to seeing you at Qurtino.
