Cutlery Art

cutlery artIt’s a long weekend here so I’m taking a break today. In the mean time here’s a photo of some very nice cutlery laid out very artistically.


Expandable Cutlery Drawer Tray Organizer

bamboo cultery trayMoving into a new house or apartment always leads to a problem, what drawer does the cutlery fit into? Close to the stove? Close to the fridge? And then the dreaded problem…will my cutlery tray organizer fit into this drawer. My current tray of flatware had to have a hacksaw taken to it to make it fit. That type of frustration surely led to this product.

The Bellemain Bamboo Expandable Cutlery Drawer Organizer expands from 12.75″ to 17.5″ wide and it’s  18″ long and 2″ high. So go measure your drawer and see if you fit in the 12.75 to 17.5 inch range. When fully expanded it has 8 compartments for cutlery and 6 when closed. The bamboo construction is hardy and eco-friendly.

So the cutlery for Mahatma Gandhi has a certain irony to it I guess. His metal food bowl, two wooden spoons and a wooden fork that he used while incarcerated at the Aga Khan Palace in Pune is being sold. It is a private sale, not an auction and no word on where the estimated £75,000 will be going. Just that is being sold by a private collector.

The wooden spoons and fork seems so delicate and the fork shows a broken tine. For some reason this saddens me a little. But I want us all to take this moment to reflect on what our food means to us, how lucky we are to have it and the people around the world who work so hard for so little to create it for us.
