Kitchen Find: The French Kitchen Marble Rolling Pin
Rolling out pie dough has never been this easy.
Everyone from your favorite Instagram foodie to your mother is accessorizing their space with all things marble.
While marble is the stylish material du jour, it actually has a long history of being one of the most useful materials in the kitchen. Thanks to its ability to keep nice and cool for long periods of time, marble is a great material for all sorts of kitchen tools and surfaces used specifically for baking. Temperature-sensitive techniques such as tempering chocolate and working with pastry require a light, cool touch, something that marble is absolutely terrific at providing.
Enter the French Kitchen Marble Rolling Pin. While it seems a bit over the top to buy a rolling pin made almost entirely out of marble, the marble actually makes this the best tool for rolling out sensitive doughs such as shortcrust pastry, puff pastry and, if you're feeling ambitious, croissant dough. The best thing about this particular rolling pin is that it's as useful as it is pretty!
You can grab one of these at Crate & Barrel.
