“When they were rehearsing, Florence was like, ‘I’ll need to get some implements. So, we’ll go over here.’ She picked it up and just went, ‘There’s one fork! There’s only one fork!’ So, that’s where that dialogue came from,” Bertie explained. “The props people were searching around for other forks, but they only had plastic ones, so it became the one proper cutlery fork and one plastic fork. It was perfect and it all went into the script and we came out with this hilarious Yelena and Kate scene. Florence and Hailee are just so relaxed with each other that Hailee could come out with the, ‘I’m one person,’ line as response to Florence running with the cutlery joke. It was funny, but also very Kate.”
What we learn from this is that having a decent set of cutlery is grade level for quality of life. Even in Russia.
There is a spoon for every situation and situation for every spoon. That’s a saying right? OK, it is now. Flatware never fails to find a way. How about that one? Cutlery can do it? No, ok, we give up.
But there are different spoons for different needs and the fine folks at Architectural Digest wrote this amazing article about nine different types of spoon and what they are used for. I’m sure there is more than nine, I counted 14 in my spoon box. But this is a great start.
They discuss the following spoons:
Iced Beverage Spoon
Amuse Bouche Spoon
Bar or Cocktail Spoon
So over the next nine posts here at The Cutlery Review we will be picking our favorite of each of these types of spoons. Come on back and learn more!
Come on! Kung Foon? That’s hilarious! The silly name for this camping cutlery is what initially caught our eye. But then at second glance it was the functionality that really caught us.
The GSI Outdoors Glacier Stainless Kung Foon Utensil is a spoon, fork and a set of chopsticks all in one easy to carry package. It’s compact size measures 10.7 x 1.9 x 0.9 inches. The Foon is made of stainless steel (supposedly there is a titanium version but we can’t find it) and the chopsticks are made of bamboo.
I guess you could call it flatpack flatware? The extension by the chopsticks make it great for reaching the bottom of freeze dried meal bags and tall pots.
