The curated kitchen: French rolling pin

A rolling pin is a funny thing. You want it light enough not to tire your hands, but heavy enough to give you a nice, thin dough. Limber enough to roll out the crust, but sturdy enough to do a proper job of it. And, if you are like me, you want it cleanly made, simply constructed, and lovely enough to display. Which brings us to the Fletchers’ Mill French rolling pin. Tapered at either end (perfect for maneuverability), made in the US of maple (solid and attractive), and a full 20″ long (go’wan, bring on your full size crust; this pin can take it), this meets all the criteria. Nicely.
