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?

    1. That’s not pedantic at all. It’s just accurate. I have Messermeister knives and I knew the logo on Favreau/Babish’s fork wasn’t it, but I couldn’t for anything figure out what it was. It wasn’t terribly important to me other than curiosity, but now I know. I sort of “cheaped out” on my carving fork and bought a Cangshan, but now I can rest well knowing even Favreau, Babish, and Roy Choi tacitly acknowledge you don’t need to spend a ton of money on an expensive German fork to do what you need it to do. Not that the Park Plaza is really all that fancy as Messermeister goes, but still.
