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?
