Wooden Spoons, The Backstory

What's the story behind your favourite wooden spoon? Where did it come from? Is it stained from use? Did you scorch it on the stove? Was it a disciplinary tool? On this episode we talk with Terron Dodd, a cherished wooden spoon carver from Cape Breton, NS. Terron says, "I can make a wooden spoon, but the trees, they do all the work." On this episode we hear about those trees, his process, and how his sister's wedding cake launched his career as a wooden spoon maker. Skye Manson from the podcast My Open Kitchen and radio doc maker Dick Miller also share the story behind their favourite wooden spoons. It's all about hand made beauty, strength and discipline on this episode of The Food Podcast.     Follow Skye on Instagram @skye_manson   Follow The Food Podcast on Instagram
