Chef Alice Waters of Berkeley, Calif. really enjoys cooking a egg over a fire in a hand-forged iron egg spoon. This is a rather specific piece of cutlery that requires on open fire. Perhaps a pizza oven would do but it’s made for the fire. She has had a blacksmith make these spoons available for sale at $250 each.
And it seems a lot of people have a lot to say about all of this. Not sure why it’s such a big deal but it has caused a bit of a kerfuffle. I think the concept is great and I’m sure it makes a great fire cooked egg. And I’d like to try it, but I’m not sure why all the fuss.
Check out the article at the NY Times and decide for yourself.

We are looking at butter knives lately and this one is pretty interesting. At first it looked like it was an electrically warmed piece of cutlery but this knife has a different low tech trick.
The Serrated Warming Butter Knife and Spreader from That! Inventions uses the heat of your hand to heat itself up. Made of dishwasher safe super-efficient copper heat-transfer core and a titanium shell heat conducting technology that utilizes your body heat to carve and spread cold butter.
