The only thing that I don't like about it is that it perpetuates that myth that the Medieval and Renaissance person only ate with his or her fingers.

Wrong!  They did use utensils.  Not always forks but they did use spoons and knives.  The Middle East started using forks in the 7th Century AD, and the Italians started using them in the 11th century, although not everywhere.  France saw their first fork in 1533.  

At least they didn't say that they ate highly spiced rotten meat.
