A practical but fun gift for the Rock Star Chef in your life. This set of 2 guitar shaped wooden spoons are made from durable beechwood. As seen above you get an electric and an acoustic guitar. They are approximately 10 inches long and 3 inches wide.
Great for using in non-stick cookware (to avoid metal scratching the Teflon). I would treat them with some food safe oil and keep them out of the dishwasher so they continue rocking for years to come.

A study has discovered that your fancy silverware can make certain types of food taste horrible.
Stainless steel flatware seems to be better than silver in a series of taste tests.
For the very best culinary experience, cutlery should be made of gold, the researchers found.
Dr Zoe Laughlin, of University College London’s Institute of Making, tested spoons made of seven materials – gold, silver, stainless steel, zinc, copper, tin and chrome.

This is a nice looking set of cutlery with a leaf motif on the handles. It’s called Blossom Sand and is made by Cambridge Silversmiths. But don’t be confused by the manufacture’s name, it’s made of brushed finish stainless steel and not silver. Be wary that not all silverware is silver.
That aside this flatware set consists of 4 salad forks, 4 dinner forks, 4 teaspoons, 4 tablespoons, and 4 butter knives. It is dishwasher safe with a 25-year limited warranty.

My Sister sent me this photo and it was captioned “Silverware by Tim Burton, available at Macys”. But a little quick googling showed that it’s not Tim Burton but Isaïe Bloch who created this 3D printed flatware masterpiece. And you can buy a printed copy of each piece from his store for about 250 euros each.
According to an article by Beautiful Life:
“Belgian designer Isaïe Bloch explores the notion of decay/processing, ornamental and aesthetic excess as in former rococo and baroque times, moments of collapse/disequilibrium and a balance in between etiquette dining and torture tools. by subverting the logic of perfection and beauty, non-perfect images coming from controlled methodologies are generated.”
