Kitchen Organization 101: Is there any obvious and efficient way to organize the drawer in my kitchen that holds all my big/weirdly shaped utensils (ie. mixing spoons, measuring cups, spatulas, pastry cutter, salad server, tongs, etc) that DOESN'T involve having them in a holder on the countertop? We don't have the counterspace to spare. [more inside]

What are these bamboo utensils
I just got a canister filled with some bamboo utensils - spatula, spoon, slotted spoon etc. They seem to be waterproofed with some kind of coating. Does anyone know what kind of coating is used in this process? Thanks

At many restaurants, after the starter course is finished, the waiter will remove my dirty knife and fork from the plate, and leave them for me to use with my main course. I dislike this, and usually will ask for a clean knife and fork for the next course.
My question is: what is the thinking behind this? The added cost I would think is trivial, and it just seems really weird to expect people to eat a new course with food from the last course on the utensils. Is there some financial aspect to putting more utensils through the dishwasher that I'm missing?

I'm thinking about designing and making my own eating utensils, because I am that food obsessed. But I'm unsure of what materials to use. [more inside]

DC and surrounding area thrift store filter:
I am willing to drive into rural MD or VA to find second hand/ thrift/ junk stores that have not been picked over- I am looking to buy mismatched dinnerware pieces and silver. Any recommendations? Hidden treasure troves? [more inside]

Anybody know where I can buy the Faces - Ferran Adria Collection in America? I'm looking for three specific items
, and would like to avoid paying the exorbitant overseas shipping charges associated with ordering from a foreign source. Online sources preferred, but even a bricks and mortar store that I might be able to call and order from would be fine. Thanks in advance

I'm looking for a great chef's knife. I'm getting married soon so we're registering for gifts. My fiancee and I already have a decent set of knives, but I want a really fantastic chef's knife. While poking around on Alton Brown's site, I noticed his glowing
for Kershaw Shun knives. Does anyone have any other opinions or recommendations?
