The world’s most haute-culture spork

Sporks get a lot of bad press in today’s pop culture — probably because of their association with primary school cafeterias and army mess halls. So tacky have they become, in fact, that they may have come full circle around to being posh.

This gem of a spork can be found in Paris at Spoon, a gastronomic adventure created by the famous French chef Alain Ducasse. With the homemade mousse with chocolate flakes, to be exact. And somehow, it actually makes the mousse taste better.

Give Spoon a try if you’re near Champs-Elysees and don’t want schlocky tourist fare. Its at 12, rue Marignan near the Roosevelt stop on the Metro — and yes, the food is fantastic.
