Why we love this product

A lovin’ spoonful.

Spoons are one of the simplest tools in the house, and one man’s earliest eating utensils. Louise Forbes’ simple, charming, carved wooden spoons are full of traditional, rustic, homely appeal. Form meets function and while unassuming, these are objects of captivating beauty.

This maker’s spoons are pick-up-able and caressably smooth. The symmetry and positioning of the grain in each unique item is no accident – each piece of wood has been carefully selected, and it shows. These are spoons you can get to know personally, enjoying the way the grain runs along and around the handle or maps the contours of the bowl of the spoon.

The large scooping spoon is ideal for piling generously high with fruit, salad or vegetables. We love to experiment with interesting, colourful salads and vegetables – from quinoa to beetroot and various bean and lentil concoctions – all of which deserve one of Louise's beautiful serving spoons thoughtfully positioned alongside at the table.
