What is the proper way to eat soup?

by Christina

I say the the proper way to eat soup is to slide the soup spoon away from myself so as not to spill soup on my clothes.


My husband says it does not matter and he scoops the spoon toward himself? Please settle this dispute

Soup Eating Etiquette
by: Ms P Etiquette

Christina,

​Yes, eating your soup from the far lip of the bowl is correct and was expected long ago. I am afraid it has been largely forgotten today. Tell you husband that his method is Modern Etiquette and your way is Historical Etiquette!​
