A cook's best friend. One end of this spoon is for stirring and the other end is for tasting. There is also a grove connecting the two spoons so that the sample can run down and cool before you sample. Hand made in Kentucky of cherry wood harvested from the Appalachian Mountains. The tasting spoon is approximately 13 inches long and easy to care for. Hand wash and pat dry. Never leave soaking in water and never place in the dishwasher. An occasional coating of mineral oil will help retain the wood's natural luster. This unique spoon is a foodie favorite.
