The spoon is often an under-appreciated utensil. Playing second fiddle to its pronged sidekick and parodied by the invention of the spork.
But a spoon should be a cook’s ultimate tool, a weapon even. It should be your guide to kitchen dominance… Your culinary Sherpa.
A spoon… For real?
Well consider this. Some pro cooks will carve their names in their spoons… They claim them. You do not touch another cook’s spoons. This is because their spoon is their guide to quality control. It tells a pro everything that they need to know. Besides the tasting part, it can also be used for general measurement, as a meat flipper, a baster, or to flip frozen peas at co-workers. It is truly invaluable.
