Finger food is food eaten with 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 other cultures, however, it might be seen as unhygienic to touch your food with your hands (although holding your food with a napkin might be accepted).

In many countries there are catering businesses that supply finger-foods for events such as weddings, engagements, 21st, 50th birthdays and other milestone celebrations. It is a great social food. Examples of such fingerfood are are miniature beef pies, sausage rolls, spring rolls, miniature quiches, samosas, risotto balls and many other styles of foods.
