I was on the lookout for a couple of basting brushes to replace my very ratty greasy ones. I thought about getting silicone brushes, but they don’t really soak up the liquids the way I want. And something about silicone and food coming together has never really sat that well with me. The other day, while wandering around Dean & Deluca trying to pass 15 minutes before a meeting, I came upon these lovely specimens. Something about the combination of the bristles, the cerulean blue plastic and the wooden handles make me quite happy. I also have a thing for brushes. More to come.
