Aside from a chef’s knife, what is Ford Fry’s most important kitchen tool?
Your sauté spoon. Or I’m always zesting with a microplane and grating cheese with a microplane. As far as small things, it’s that sauté spoon because you can sauté with it, cook steaks with it, baste steaks with it and flip fish with it. Everyone wonders why I don’t use those big grill utensil sets that you find at the grocery store on my grill. I don’t know, I don’t like them — they don’t feel comfortable to me. I typically use my spoon.
