Handmade in the United States.

Inspired by William Rubel’s The Magic of Fire: Hearth Cooking, this iconic spoon is modeled after the original version Alice Waters had made for her. The hand-forged iron and copper spoon is perfectly calibrated for frying an egg in the fireplace or over a gas flame, and is now reproduced to Alice's exacting standards by blacksmith Shawn Lovell in Alameda, CA.

Egg in a Spoon Recipe

Crack an egg into a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Stovetop: Turn your burner to medium, grease your egg spoon with olive oil, and pour in the egg. Hold just above the flame until the whites have cooked through (about 3 minutes). Remove from heat and use a smaller spoon to loosen and flip the egg to crisp the top briefly, then slide onto a piece of garlic toast.

Fire: Build a wood fire. When you have smoldering coals and glowing logs, arrange them to create a kind of oven, throwing heat from all sides. Grease the egg spoon with olive oil, pour in the egg. Position the fire until the egg is puffed up and browned, then slide egg onto a piece of garlic toast.
