Fortessa Arezzo 18/10 Polished Stainless Steel Flatware Cutlery

Fortessa Arezzo Stainless Steel Flatware

Over the next few weeks we will be looking at some of the Fortessa cutlery line. Fortessa tableware is used by over 70% of the Forbes Four and Five-Star Hotels in North America. Fortessa flatware is made from heavyweight 18/10 stainless steel, the highest quality available for flatware. The company Fortessa has a great backstory:

“Some of our happiest memories happen around the table – shared stories, savory meals, warm laughter. And sometimes, as was the case for brothers Scott and Eric Hamberger, devising a plan to follow their entrepreneurial passion and start a family business. So, in 1993 after finding inspiration in the quality and craftsmanship of fine German porcelain, the Hamberger brothers started importing and selling high quality dinnerware direct out of their parents’ garage.”

The Fortessa Arezzo flatware is a very basic elegant design. This twenty piece set includes 4 each of table fork, salad/dessert fork, table knife, dessert/soup spoon, and a coffee/tea spoon. Made of dishwasher safe 18/10 stainless steel. The Arezzo pattern is characterized by the square handles and 360° design which is a pattern design appearing on front and back on every piece.

Binging with Babish Cookware & Cutlery

Well our man crush Babish has finally cashed in his popular chips for a line of cookware and cutlery. Sadly we don’t see much for cutlery or flatware other than tongs but he has knives, knives and knives. Oh and bowls and measure cups. And no tiny whisks? (oh wait, TINY WHISK SET RESTOCK COMING SOON!!!) But no carving fork yet either?

The Babish Culinary Universe really is expanding a great deal and all the power to him. His influence on making popular Jon Favreau’s carving fork from the movie “Chef” and the infamous Tiny Whisk is staggering. And let’s not forget that he is teaching people how to cook. And that’s a good thing.

Sabre Bistro Shiny Stainless Flatware Set

Sabre Paris is really going for that classic, solid and dependable look with this understated cutlery set. This flatware looks formidable. I don’t know if it’s the rivets on the handles, the very pointed fork tines or that serrated knife? This is cutlery that could survive generations and a few hostile encounters. It almost scares me.

The Sabre Flatware Set Stainless Steel Black Bistrot is a 5 piece setting that is service for 4 which equals 20-pieces. The five pieces are soup spoon, dinner knife, dinner fork, salad fork and tea spoon. The black handles are made of high quality resin and the cutlery itself of dishwasher safe 18/10 stainless steel. These sets are imported from France.

“Tablespoon” in her recipe book didn’t actually mean Tablespoon

Tablespoon" in her recipe book didn't actually mean Tablespoon

This wonderful tweet was brought to our attention by our wonderful sister who no doubt was referring to our wonderful Grandmother D. The tweet itself is by Shiv Ramdas and here’s the link to the original tweet. And where it became rather infamous over on reddit.

He goes on to mention in the twitter thread: “I should point out that none of this even refers to the most dreaded recipes in there, AKA the Blue Spoon recipes, which have this name because the steps have helpful tips like “Add 2 blue spoons of sugar” because I don’t even have it in me to attempt this boss battle.”

The blue spoon is a great way of specifying exactly what cooking cutlery you need to use in the kitchen. I’m certain my Grandmother used the blue spoon regularly. Another classic piece of cooking equipment for her was the” golden syrup” can, as that was just right for cut dough for perogies. Or was that my Mother? I’m certain as soon as I post this I’ll be proven wrong.

If you are looking for your own blue spoon, here’s a nice one from Amazon:
