The fork was invented in the Middle East before the year 1000. In the 11th century it made its way to Italy through the Byzantine empire. Then it became popular there in the 14th century, being used by upper classes in 1600s.Then it spread to Northern Europe and ultimately to the world. Although some use chopsticks. :D

No one knows. Forks were first used in the Middle Ages. The fork as we know it today became popular only in the late 1800s.
