Alinea Peacock Skewer Set by Crucial Detail

Serveware for SQUAB, Watermelon, Licorice, Foie Gras pages 158-161, and PEANUT, Five Other Flavors pages 384-385.

About a year ago, I received a shipment from J.B. Prince: an Alinea Restaurant “Peacock” skewer set (US$65.50) and some “Craters” plates (US$52.50 each). You can also get just the skewers, sold as a replacement set (US$30.60) from J.B. Prince.

The surgical stainless steel set (7.0-inch rods x 0.75-inch base) came packed in its own padded box.

The delicate skewers (5) themselves were in a hard plastic tube. This elegant set was designed by Martin Krasner of Crucial Detail for Grant Achatz’s Chicago restaurant, Alinea and is available from them as well (US$60.00).

I bought this set for the PEANUT, Five Other Flavors recipe, but first used some of the skewers for the Fennel Candy component in SQUAB, Watermelon, Licorice, Foie Gras.
