Hi, I'm looking for a word to describe the act of using a spoon, fork or a pair of chopsticks, etc to gather the leftover food together in one place on the bowl. The food then can be eaten up or chucked away. I looked up the equivalent Vietnamese word and got "dredge", "scrape" and "cleanse" but apparently all of these are used for harbours, rivers and lakes exclusively. I would like to know some specific words or phrases suitable for the situation above and I prefer words to phrases since they are short and easier to use as imperatives. I'm grateful for all advice and suggestions!
