|Chilled Fork - Plastic Salt and Pepper
|| Many years ago Mrs. Gorilla and I visited a now defunct Howard Johnson's Restaurant ( Remember the orange and turquoise
roof?). On the table was the usual napkin holder, menu holder and white plastic salt shaker and black plastic pepper shaker.
We ordered a
simple meal that included a salad. It arrived with a chilled fork! Something usually only found in a better class of restaurant. To this day anything I find in the culinary world that seems unexpected I refer to as a Chilled Fork - Plastic Salt and Pepper.
