food to be eaten with the fingers
Food that can be eaten with one's hands, as opposed to requiring utensils; often appetizers and snacks.
Finger food is food meant to be eaten directly using the hands, in contrast to food eaten with a knife and fork, chopsticks, or other utensils. In some cultures, food is almost always eaten with the hands; for example, Ethiopian cuisine is eaten by rolling various dishes up in injera bread. In the South Asian subcontinent, food is traditionally always eaten with hands. Foods considered street foods are frequently, though not exclusively, finger foods.
A wide variety of food and food products created, produced, bought and sold to be eaten by a human being with their fingers.
Finger foods are easy and simple to cook and share e.g. carrot sticks, vol au vent, chips, french fries, kebab sticks etc.Submitted by MC Harmonious on December 8, 2016
