I dedicate this post to my wife who seems to suffer from this problem. Well actually I suffer from the problem and she’s the cause. When you put knives in the dishwasher, according Richard Herring, “Knives go down, for fork’s sake”. At the Metro UK Richard has a great article about the protagonist in his “novel” that dies by tripping over in the kitchen and landing on a large kitchen knife that is in the cutlery section of the dishwasher, sticking point upwards. (It’s not true but still scary). Cutlery can kill it seems. Fatal flatware if you will.
Before reading that, you might want to check out our earlier post on avoiding rust on cutlery in your dishwasher.

When I was in school as a child and the substitute teacher come in pushing a TV cart we knew it was going to be a pretty easy day. So let’s start this week with a interesting video from Hindicraft who produce handcrafted cutlery. This video shows the skill and how quickly they can make flatware. Watch for how fast the butter knife comes together.
It’s the traditional monday fun today and this is actually informative if you didn’t already know it. This method of keeping your dripping wooden spoon over the pot works well for wooden spoons but not metal (they get too hot) or plastic (they will melt).

I know you don’t want to hear this, but it’s coming. You can’t stop the slow advance, it will suddenly be upon you. Christmas, is indeed, coming to town. Your only way to escape it’s ravages is to begin preparations now. And a classic recipe involving cutlery is the chocolate spoon. The recipe is simple but the variations and applications are almost infinite. I don’t like mine with sprinkles as I like to stir it into my “magic Xmas coffee”, so I prefer it to be dusted with cinnamon. Great gift idea and special treat for breakfast on Christmas morning.
