  • 7

Hey there! Does anyone know where I can find quenelle spoons for making perfecting turned quenelles like I see on TV? Thanks...

  1. I don't believe there's a specific spoon for it. Any large dinner spoon can make a quenelle, just takes a little practice. You could experiment with different shaped spoons, rounder/narrower, to find one that you prefer.

    1. Quenelle is a technique, resulting in the mini 'football' like shape, not a tool. It takes a lot of practice but keep trying. You'll get it.

      1. I wasn't familiar with the term so I looked it up. Everything I saw said it was practice, practice, practice and any spoon would do.

        Maybe this will help? The music makes it sound like a funeral, but the technique is there.

        1. Yes, I agree with everyone else, just try it out with different spoons, it's really not that hard.
