Thank goodness for the etiquette expert on YouTube to correct our bad bread buttering style. He claims we’ve all been buttering bread wrong our entire life.  “Wrong” as in you’re doing it like an uncultured peasant. Here’s the “right” way, or the way to do it in public because you know you’re going to spread it how you always have in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Step One:  Take a piece of bread or a bread roll, and put it on your plate.

Step Two:  Use a knife to put a small amount of butter on your plate that’s just for you.  You shouldn’t take it from the dish and put it directly on your bread because, “that’s disgusting.”

Step Three:  Take your piece of bread and break it up into smaller, bite-sized pieces with your hands.

Step Four:  Butter each bite-sized piece individually before you eat it.  Never butter them all at once.

There you go, he claims that’s the classy way to do it.
