ALICE'S EGG SPOON

$250.00

‘Alice’s Egg Spoon’ is a hand-forged iron spoon perfectly calibrated for frying an egg in the fireplace or over a gas flame. In 2004, when Chez Panisse founder Alice Waters (Permanent Collection co-founder, Fanny’s mother) read William Rubel’s The Magic of Fire: Hearth Cooking, she asked a blacksmith friend named Angelo Garro to make a spoon to cook an egg in the coals. The iconic spoon quickly became one of the items most identified with Alice’s kitchen and cuisine. This Permanent Collection version is modeled after that original spoon, but crafted by blacksmith Shawn Lovell according to Alice’s honed specifications to make cooking a single egg a fun, special and easy ritual!

Based in Alameda, California, Shawn’s career in metalworking has spanned more than two decades. She invests her handcrafted ironworks with great attention to detail and emphasis on joinery, texture and finish so that each creation is sure to become a family heirloom.

5% of every spoon purchase will be donated to The Edible Schoolyard Project, founded by Alice in 1995.
