Handmade wooden spoons, made in Tanzania.

These make wonderful gift for cooks, new homeowners, or those who prefer a natural aesthetic and country kitchen cooks.

Each spoon is made from Mpingo wood; a hard wood native to Tanzania.

Once carved, metal tools are used to burn in the decorative design. Excellent for frying, stir-frying, etc, as spoons have a flatter head than many mass-produced spoons - they reach a greater surface are of the pan.

Design 1 have a hanging hole for easy storage and a smaller head, Design 2 are created to act as a spoon both for cooking and ladling, and are lighter in colour.

As all are handmade, the finished spoon will vary from those shown in the picture. All are approx 30cm length.
