Jon Favreau’s Carving Fork from the movie “Chef”

Messermeister Park Plaza Forged Carving Fork

Today’s cutlery post is just what it says on the title. We have finally found Jon Favreau’s carving fork from the movie “Chef”.

In the video screen shot above you can see Jon giving the original to Andrew Rea on the amazing YouTube show “Binging with Babish”.

This is one of the less used but most valued items in our kitchen. The weight and balance are wonderful. Not great for teflon pans but perfect for everything else. And especially good for making the infamous “Pasta Aglio e Olio” also from “Chef” as below:

The 7-Inch Messermeister Park Plaza Forged Carving Fork is made of German 1.4116 high-carbon stainless steel. And it has a lifetime warranty against material and manufacturing defects. And did we mention it’s forged steel?

BYOC (Bring Your Own Cutlery) or ECC (Everyday Carry Cutlery)?

Above is the single use plastic picnic tray invented by French designer Jean-Pierre Vitrac. It’s from around the World War II era. I have to say it is pretty impressive. A cup, tray and cool looking knife, fork and spoon. And it’s plastic. And we aren’t happy with plastic these days and I get that.

So as the world plans on banning plastic and it’s use in the food industry we have new ideas. Here at the Cutlery Review we have been promoting what we call the Everyday Carry Cutlery or ECC. But our friends over at are suggesting Bring Your Own Cutlery or BYOC. Either way it’s a great idea.
