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 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:

Yamazaki Bolo 5 Piece Ice Cream Set

Yamazaki Bolo 5 Piece Ice Cream Set

We’ve written quite a few articles about Yamazaki cutlery products here at The Cutlery Review over the years. And we’ve seen quite a bit of traffic and fielded a few questions about them. There is something about the Japanese design esthetic when it comes to cutlery that just seems out of the box in the best way.

The Yamazaki Bolo 5 Piece Ice Cream Set really has that “out of this world” design. It reminds me of the cutlery from the 2001 movie.

This flatware set is intended for ice cream but don’t limit yourself, it really could used for almost anything. This cutlery set is a “signature dish” detail for the budding chef. Built of dishwasher safe 18/0 stainless steel with a beautiful satin finish this set includes four 7-inch ice cream spoons and a 8-1/2-inch ice cream serving spoon.
