Tale of Two Spatulas

One day while I was cooking a delicious Fajita dish with my girlfriend, who is extremely inexperienced in the kitchen, I needed a spatula to scrape the pan. My friend quickly placed a spatula in my hand – but not the kind I was thinking of. Instead, she handed me the kind you use to peel cookies off a sheet pan.

I looked at her like she was crazy and explained that I needed a spatula. Then we started to laugh, realizing that the item I wanted – and the item she handed me – were both called by the same name! Indeed, both spatula varieties are essential tools for the kitchen. No chef, experienced or not, should go without.

Happy Cooking! Mary
