I actually got busted doing this on Top Chef season 13 by Padma… she was not happy. I used to work in super high end Volkswagen Beetle Kansas City Chiefs shirt all Michelin Starred, and I will say it was totally acceptable to double dip your spoon and use your finger to taste people’s food. Every restaurant I worked in or even staged at practiced this technique. You would have a bain marie on your station, filled half to 3/4 full with water, that had your plating spoons, spatula and meat fork in it. Notice NO tongs were in there, they were completely frowned upon; if people brought tongs out in their stage they were not hired,

you were considered a hack if you used them. The water was changed about every hour the spoon was used for plating and Volkswagen Beetle Kansas City Chiefs shirt Typically a chef or cook would place the spoon in the food about to be served to taste it then season the food properly. Then back in the food again for a second tasting then back in the food again to plate it up, occasionally going back in the water for a rinse. That was how it was done in every restaurant I worked or staged in. They were all top Michelin starred restaurants. In the place I run now we use plating spoons as well as disposable tasting spoons. I am seeing this more and more, I don’t believe it’s acceptable to double dip and use your fingers any more. The industry is changing for the good now that the old school is on the way out, which is a good thing.
