Old World Kitchen Dreamware Giveaway

If you’ve followed me for a while, you may have picked up that I have a thing for kitchenware.  I was a Food Network junkie when I left the corporate world, so I could support Jeff in full-time youth ministry and be a homemaker.  I thoroughly relished the time and spent much of it cooking and baking from scratch and, as a part of that, building my collection of kitchen gear.  I built up a pretty well-equipped kitchen with great knives, utensils, pots & pans, cutting boards, etc., but I still keep an eye out for special pieces I can add or tools I can upgrade.

Some of my favorite pieces of kitchen gear over the past couple of years have been wooden spoons and spatulas.  I love the warm patina they develop over time.  The more they are used, the better the look, in my opinion.

Through Instagram, I found and started following a Virginia family who makes and sells hand-carved wooden utensils – The Polders of Old World Kitchen.

I was drawn not only to their beautiful work, but to their story.  They are artisans and small business rockstars.

So, when they asked if I would be interested in adding a few pieces of their Dreamware to my collection and offering a giveaway on my blog, I was more than happy to oblige.

I’ve been using a few of their pieces in my kitchen for a couple of weeks and they truly are not-just-a-regular-wooden-spoon.

I noticed how the spatulas especially, seemed to be carefully designed and carved, so they fit perfectly into your hand.  It’s a small thing that you don’t notice until you start using it in a repetitive motion, like lifting two dozen cookies off parchment or stirring potatoes in a pan.

And the woods they use are all gorgeous!  The graining and colors are a feast for the eyes.

I may love painted things, but, believe it or not, I’m a wood-lover as well.  The two can co-exist.

In addition to the hard carved Dreamware collection, they sell other high-end kitchenware, like ceramics, linens, and vintage and antique copper pieces – molds, pots, pans, casseroles, kettles, etc.

And I bet you can guess how I feel about copper…

So, the copper page on their website just kills me.

The pieces offered in their shop are definitely investment pieces.  They are special occasion wooden spoons for everyday use.  I see them as being a great gift for someone who is passionate about cooking and will appreciate the detail and craftsmanship of each piece.

If their wares are out of your price range, don’t dismay!  You have a chance to win two of their best-selling utensils – the Roux Spoon ($140) and the Favorite Baking Spatula ($199).  In order to win, just leave a comment on this post!

If you are interested in making a purchase, use code MUSTARDSEED to get 25% off your total.

And if you just love looking at wooden spoons and other pretty kitchen gear or you want to be inspired by a family who is following their dream, you can follow the Polder’s on Instagram at Old World Kitchen.

The giveaway will close Monday, September 11, 2017, at midnight PST.  A winner will be randomly chosen and notified shortly after.

Good luck!

Disclosure: I was sent products from Old World Kitchen to use and review in exchange for this post.  I was thrilled to partner with such a special company and did not receive additional payment for this post or any social media promotions.  I do not receive any additional income for purchases made through this post.  All words and opinions are, as always, my own.
