After asking my question about marrow spoons in our improvisational cooking class Rudi Steele accepted my query as a challenge. He sent us this e-mail.
"Yesterday morning I sent off an urgent message to Alain Ducasse at Hotel Plaza Athenee in Paris,
having him look for a bone marrow spoon Alex spoke of, and which he had been searching for.
Alain mobilized his entire staff and "good news" I just received a message from Alain's kitchen
in Paris. They found a bone marrow spoon at Alain's kitchen at Hotel de Paris in Monte-Carlo.
These spoons are no longer made, but the company still does exist. The spoon in the kitchen
in Monte-Carlo is sort of beat up, but it has already been sent to the original maker for restoration
and new silver plating."
