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.

            1. world market was a decent one for 3 bucks its just not as heavy or deep as i'd like but it works, also the flute collection have heavy deep bowled spoons at http://www.williams-sonoma.com/produc...

                From JB Prince, you could get the Gray Kunz spoon which is a pretty popular spoon with cooks and chefs. With two of these, you could make quenelles although they're expensive- $10 each and another $10 for shipping.
