Hand-carved Wooden Kitchen Utensils: Dreamware Giveaway

Today I’m so happy to announce a special giveaway for my readers! I’m once again partnering with Polder’s Old World Market to offer one of you the chance to win a beautiful, hand-carved charcuterie board. For many years I’ve been collecting wooden kitchen utensils from the Dreamware line at Polder’s and my newest acquisition is a stunning charcuterie board, a petite artisan spoon, and a hickory pasta spoon. (This is a sponsored post – see my privacy policy.)

But that’s not all, from now until the end of the month, Town and Country Living readers can enjoy 20% off any Dreamware purchase from Polder’s Old World Market. Use the code TOWNANDCOUNTRY at checkout.

The Dreamware collection from Polder’s Old World Market is so – well – dreamy. Every piece is hand-carved and the craftsmanship truly shows. The utensils are smooth to the touch and I love using them for baking and cooking. Not to mention, they look great when serving guests.

The first time I used the charcuterie board, I made peach bruschetta which is basically honey ricotta toast with peach slices. I grill slices of a French baguette and then apply a thin layer of ricotta cheese whipped with a small dose of honey. You can drizzle just a touch of honey over the top of ricotta and add your favorite fruit. I used the petite artisan spoon to drizzle the honey. Typically I use peaches or figs for this bruschetta. It’s the perfect appetizer or small bite.

I was excited to try out the new pasta spoon so I made my pasta with tomato cold sauce recipe. The spoon worked like a charm for serving pasta. Now I no longer need the kitchen tongs.

Each hand-carved piece of Dreamware is signed, making it special and unique. I’ve used pieces from Polder’s Old World Market to make oatmeal raisin pecan cookies, sticky buns, and used them for general decorating in my kitchen. I would never hide these hand-carved beauties in a drawer. LOL. My collection of Dreamware began seven years ago.
