Fascinated as we are by the tools great artists and artisans use to produce their work, we asked chefs at some of Brooklyn’s best restaurants to tell us about the items they rely on every day. In some cases they’re similar to the items you probably reach for regularly at home—a knife that fits in your hand just so, or a sturdy, tight-lidded pot—but we’ll go ahead and assume you don’t have a giant wheel of Pecorino Romano or a perfectly weathered manual can opener from Japan. Not yet, anyway.
