    FYI, there is a related noun, 'finger food' - food designed to be eaten without cutlery.

    Re: eat with hands

    Vol-au-vents, canapés, crudités (a lot of food names are borrowed from French), dips, kebabs (still on the skewer), chicken wings/drumsticks ... anything that gets your fingers sticky.

    PS Note for Francophones: a drumstick has nothing to do with a baguette; it's the lower half (tibia & fibula) of a chicken's leg.
