Kitchenography with David Myers Part 5
Put that rolling pin to use for more than dough
All good things must come to an end, they say, and such is the case with Kitchenography with David Myers. The acclaimed chef behind Comme Ca in West Hollywood, The Cosmopolitan in Vegas and Sola in Tokyo has come through with awesome suggestions on how to sub in common kitchen tools if more advanced tools aren't at hand. For this final installment (for now), Myers suggests using a rolling pin to sub in where most home cooks usually use the side of a knife.
Nuts and other hard ingredients can potentially dent a knife, so the hard wood of a rolling pin makes it a perfect substitute.
