Chinese Soup Spoons – A classic every kitchen should have

chinese soup spoonIf you don’t already have these, please get them, and please don’t steal them from the local restaurant. These spoons are classic and timeless but more importantly they are an amazing multi-use piece of cutlery. From the obvious for soup to a great way to serve an Amuse-bouche. Or even setting up spices and condiments for serving or Mise en place. OK, so I’ve been watching a lot of french cooking shows lately 🙂

Made of rugged dishwasher safe Melamine (don’t worry it’s safe) and heat resistant to 212 degrees Fahrenheit. These things last forever and are always handy.

You need a Big Fork for Serving and Stuff

Everyone has the basic set of cutlery in their house. Of course they usually have a large butcher’s knife and bread knife. And in most cases you have a serving spoon. But where is the serving fork? I’m not talking about the two pronged carving fork. Many cultures when eating using only a fork and spoon.

Think about trying to serve coleslaw with two large spoons, now think about using a large spoon and the serving fork shown here. Trust me, it just works better. And you will find you use it for more than just serving, try using it instead of a spatula when turning fish while frying.

This is one of the least seen but more useful pieces of cutlery in the kitchen arsenal. Dishwasher safe, stainless steel and handy as all get out.

Vera Wang Equestrian Flatware

OK, yes I know, Vera Wang is all about fashion (wedding dresses are what I know about).  But just look at this cute 5 piece set in 18/10 stainless steel. Just look at it! Cute little buckles on the handles so they look like little belts. Squee!!! The “Equestrian” is in reference to horse tack but I think they are belts for gnomes. I may have had too much coffee this morning but I am of the opinion these are perfect for the table of any fashionista! Great price as well!

Knork Flatware – The Knife and Fork combo

knorkIf you check out our History & Trivia section you can see a diagram that shows the family tree of all utensils.  The spork everyone seems to know, but the under appreciated knork is now an actual company that creates this combination of knife and fork. Both sides of the fork are sharpened to act as a knife. This is nice for both us left-handers and even more so for people with only one hand. There will be some issues where the food item you are trying to cut slides around the plate but you can’t solve all the worlds problems at once. Handy at picnics as well. They come in stainless steel with a nice black matte finish.
