Working with this pro-tool
Good tools are essential in every busy kitchen. Especially when working with a really thin product such as gold leaf, it is essential to have a good pair of tongs or a good brush on hand. To save you some time searching for the right tools, we added our favorite tools that we love to use and that we keep recommending to our customers to our online shop.
Great for Filament and the Extra Large Gold Flakes
The best way to process the fine filament threads is take them with straight tongs right out of the jar. The jar can be closed again once done using. The tongs are easy to clean with water and a drop of dish soap.
The extremely delicate, Extra Large Gold Flakes can also be processed directly out of the container with our straight tongs. The tongs allow you to grab each flake individually from the container and place it directly on the food.

24 karat gold is very soft, which makes flakes and powders clump together quickly and decorating food almost impossible. The Gold Gourmet gold flake, on the other hand, stands out with its excellent volume and reflection.
