We rescued this fork from an antique store in Buckingham. It was a real find. The fork is hefty with a beautiful worn wooden handle. It is a tool meant to be used in the kitchen. It extends our reach on the grill. Its rounded tines hook bones and let us get underneath ingredients. The temptation with these sharp tips is to pierce the meat. This action is detrimental. Why use a meat fork? Habit. Beauty. Style. Tradition. Feel. A connection to our past. It may not be "right" tool for the job. It is for the experience.
