What are Spike Mendelsohn’s most important kitchen tools?
A chef really enjoys a nice kitchen spoon that fits well in the hand and you can use for different purposes. A microplane — you always want a great zest or some finishing touches. I like to have a couple different types of whisks. I’m a whisk type of person. I just like whisking things. When I get the chance to whisk something, I whisk away; it’s kind of like meditating in the kitchen.
