Monday (Food) Photo

Mondays on Glorious Food and Wine are usually … pretty quiet. After spending the whole weekend either cooking or taking photos, or both, Mondays tend to be a little anti-climatic. Sure, there is the Monday blues with getting back to a normal (work) schedule, wake up early, go to bed late, try to fit it all in between. But why should this lovely food blog suffer. Right?

Which is why I thought … something easy … something fun … photo – food – food photo – gadgets? – quiz – a Monday food photo quiz. Up for the game? There will be items I actually know what they are, but trust me there is a lot in our household I am not entirely sure of. Or the purpose thereof. Some will be fun to see the answers to, others I really hope you’ll help me get the answers to.

Oh, and if you have a food item or gadget yourself you’d like to put to the test, let me know. We’ll post it, link back to you and who knows? Maybe even come up with an answer.

First one up: can you guess the item photographed and its purpose? Have fun!

  • Is it used by the table-manager of a ‘craps’ table to retrieve the dice? And to pull chips around on the table?

  • Or if it’s related to food, then perhaps it’s to help you free loaves from their pans? That’s be a nice, handy thing – I usually use a spatula & end up with it warped for days….

  • It’s a Chasaku, a bamboo scoop for tea used in the tea ceremony.

  • Looks like a golf club.. Sensational..

  • three answers in … and yes, sade is right: it is a tea scoop, bought in the japanese store (tagawa). most likely i will use it for the leftover matcha.
    Stay tuned for next weeks quiz πŸ™‚

  • Hah, I would’ve guessed back-scratcher if you hadn’t already said it was a food item πŸ™‚

  • Dan

    I was going to say it’s a hockey stick for cats, but I s’pose a tea scoop makes sense too.

  • I had a feeling it was chashaku, a wooden matcha spoon, and my second guess also was Mago no te, a back scracher!

  • Tak

    It’s definately a chashaku. My mom is a tea-master. I would know!

  • I’d use it to scoop out peanut butter! Yum πŸ™‚
