Several weeks ago an email arrived in my inbox that would inspire me in a very special way. It’s one of the things I love about blogging … those unexpected surprises from a new connection that bring you joy. I received one of those surprises a few weeks ago when Loran from Polder’s Old World Market introduced me to her family’s beautiful handcrafted wooden spoons. (Polder’s Old World Market provided the handcrafted utensils, but the opinions are my own.)
I’ve never blogged about it, but I’ve been admiring wooden spoons for years.
The top one is an Italian serving spoon and I love it!
These unique handcrafted wooden spoons come in a variety of wood choices, and I’m excited to say that Polder’s Old World Market is offering a giveaway for $350 worth of your choice of hand carved chef’s artisan tools.

Look at the gorgeous details of this summer canning spoon. Chiseled scallops add intricate detail to spoons crafted from fallen trees on the family’s property. The Polder’s story of their craft is inspiring and amazing.
Have you ever heard of a spurtle? This one’s crafted from hickory wood. The spurtle is a Scottish kitchen utensil dating from the 15th century and was first used to flip hot cakes, and later used for stirring porridge. I love the striations throughout these beautiful wooden pieces and I think the spurtle is my favorite piece.
I’ll share the recipe with you soon. It’s one of my favorite breakfast meals.
The roux spoon can be used for both sauces and serving, but I found another use for it …
The cool wooden spoon slides perfectly against the iron of a hot griddle.
And the World’s Best Cookie Spatula is perfect for serving smaller foods, too.
Use the rafflecopter form below to enter. You can do just one of the entries, or perform all 7 of them for extra chances to win. The contest is open through February 25th with the winner announced on February 27th, which is my birthday! Because when I received my artisan set, I felt like it was my birthday.
A very special thanks to Loran at Polder’s Old World Market for introducing me to these beautiful pieces that I love using in my farmhouse kitchen. This is just the beginning of my wooden utensils collection.
Hop on over to Polder’s Old World Market and let me know which pieces you’d choose if you win.
