2. Offset Spatula
An Offset Spatula by The Food Obsessions has a long narrow flexible stainless steel blade with a rounded end and stainless steel handle. The long blade makes it easy to place an elements on the plate. Chefs hands can crush or mark a finished product. With a small offset spatula, you can pick up small elements from underneath and provide a safe transfer from one place to another without disrupting the sides or top. And even if you do get those small nicks on a soft surface like frosting or mousse, they can be eliminated by a gentle graze by the metal side. The Food Obsessions Offset spatula comes in classic Gold and Black version.
3. Rocher Spoons
Making a rocher, or one-handed quenelle, is a way to give a beautiful oval shape to an ice cream or even a pâte. Chefs are often taught to make a rocher with two spoons, and that can work well, but by design it creates a shape with three curving sides. By using our Rocher Spoons you are able to create a beautifully shaped oval in few simple moves! The food must be the consistency of butter at room temperature, so the rocher will form and hold its shape. The rocher spoon should be hot enough to release the rocher but not so hot that it melts the food. The Food Obsessions Rocher Spoons come in pairs, are made from stainless steel and are available in Gold, Black and Metallic Blue.
