Do you know what this is?

Do you know what the spoon-like utensil pictured to the left is?

My time in Napa Valley with my wife was spent drinking great wine and more importantly, eating great food. On our second night in the valley, my wife J and I dined at the Martini House in St. Helena. J ordered the mahi mahi pan-roasted in extra-virgin olive oil with broccoli ribbons, lemon, capers and black olives. Just before serving our entrées, our server placed the utensil pictured to the left on the table. Both J and I looked at the spoon-like utensil wondering "what is this for?" Dinner was excellent and we left the restaurant still wondering, "What was that spoon thing really for?" We should have asked our server, but we didn't.

The next night we ate at Terra, also in St. Helena. This night J ordered the grilled lobster tail, Hokkaido scallops, and cuttlefish with chardonnay butter sauce. Again, just before serving the entrée, our server dropped off one of the fancy utensils pictures to the left. And once again we wondered, "what is this spoon for?"

On our fourth night in Napa Valley we went to étoile, the restaurant at Domain Chandon, for dinner. J ordered the duck.

Do you know what this spoon-like utensil is for?

What did I eat? Stay tuned.
