    AUTHOR will deliver your product as quickly and as carefully as possible. We pride ourselves on our fastidious packaging and despatch service. Where our products are handmade, your order could take a matter of weeks; in these instances we will provide you an approx. leadtime and then keep you updated by phone or email as to the progress of your order. Where there’s a short wait for hand-crafted items made in small batches or for a custom order, trust us; it’s always worth it. Any item intended as a gift is beautifully wrapped, as standard.

    Orders under £80 incur a delivery charge of £7. Delivery is free for orders of standard products over £80. Delicate or non-standard pieces are marked as such and incur a delivery fee depending on your location and the size/weight of the piece.


  • Never soak the spoon in water; instead just wipe with a damp cloth then dry. Rub with some food-safe oil every few months. Olive oil, walnut oil and vegetable oil are all suitable.
Why we love this product

Scoop, heap, dollop.

The symmetry and positioning of the grain in each of this maker's unique spoons is no accident – each piece of wood has been carefully selected and it shows. These are spoons we love to 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 bowl of the Sonokeling Rosewood spoon is well-proportioned, generously deep and good for dolloping. It is the perfect size for scooping chutney or serving fruit, salad, vegetables, pickles, chutneys or condiments at the table.

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 these beautiful serving spoons thoughtfully positioned alongside.

Invite friends for an informal lunch, select your spoons and let guests serve themselves to salads and cold platters, heaping high and scraping to the bottom of plates, serving bowls and jars. Who knew that this hostess job could be so delightfully simple?
