Do you know the difference between a Mandoline and a Mandolin?

I didn't until this afternoon when I read a thread in a different cooking forum.

If you'd have asked me I'd have said an olde world stringed instrument, which would have been partly correct (Mandolin) - but what I didn't know was that there is a French cooking instrument called a Mandoline!! (with the added 'e').

Now, having established that there is a chef's device called a Mandoline - if you'd have asked me to describe what it looks like I would have been equally in the dark.

However, when I saw a picture of a Mandoline I was, like, "I know what that is!!! (but never knew it was called a Mandoline!!!)"

So - do you know what a Mandoline is and looks like?

Re: Do you know the difference between a Mandoline and a Mandolin?

Two posts in the Commercial Posts section, both about cooking: tagines and mandolines?

Are you sure you are on the correct forum? This site is for Cruising Sailors, not cooks.

I do know, but why is this in the commercial posts section?

Ok....now it doesn't feel so much like an infomercial.

A cynical view on my part I know, but maybe there’s some value to the OP by increasing the Google searches relating to those topics?

Re: Do you know the difference between a Mandoline and a Mandolin?

I have a Shun "mandoline" (very well designed and built, stainless steel with a wicked sharp blade) and several very nice mandolins ( 1922 Gibson F-4 and 2001 "Hamlett" A-5). I've not yet played either of the latter while slicing with the former.

Many cruisers are cooks. Some cruisers go camping at sea. Some of us eat well.

Sail fast and eat well, dave

Yes. I also know the difference between a violin and a fiddle. You don't get yelled at when you spill your beer on a fiddle.

Re: Do you know the difference between a Mandoline and a Mandolin?

I have one and am glad I do. I don't use it terribly often, but when you need it, there is no substitute.
























Now you have to figure out which one I'm talking about!
