I've been looking for some good quenelle spoons, but can't find anything on the internet. Live in Boston, anyone know a place that sells them?
Just bought an old silver spoon from an antique shop and it seems to stick when I go to let the quenelle off the spoon no matter how hot it is. Was wondering could it be that it has lots of patina and it doesn't feel as smooth as my other spoons. was wondering if your spoon is smooth and polished?I use my mother-in-law's 130 year old silver dessert spoons, they have an ideal bowl shape. Using anything else produces very average results. For me, anyway!
Sorry but the shape of the spoon is really important and IMO is the second most important part in making a rocher or one handed quenelle. Without a good ice cream even the best spoon won't get you a properly formed quenelle.Ha....really? For me, a quenelle spoon has always been.....a spoon. There are some I like better than others, and for me, quenelling has always been matter of technique rather than the shape of the tool. That said, I personally hate the shape of quenelles and don't do it often. I AM interested in the square scoop though! That sounds cool.
Whatever works for you. As IceMan reiterated, some of us can quenelle with almost anything. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/crazy.gifSorry but the shape of the spoon is really important and IMO is the second most important part in making a rocher or one handed quenelle.

Don't get your panties in a wad there, sweetie. I did say in my original post that some spoons work better than others. If you're buying some fancy "quenelle spoon", that's your business. I found many suitably shaped spoons for 10 cents apiece at the thrift store.Yeah and I can quenelle with a fork. would love to see what you consider a good quenelle. Until than your input is not needed. This thread was started to talk about where and what spoons to buy. Thanks tho.
