Object of Desire: Alice Waters’s Egg Spoon from Permanent Collection

Around this time last year, just before Easter, we shared the tale of chef Alice Waters’s storied iron egg spoon (see The Legendary Egg Spoon of Alice Waters and Fanny Singer, Easter Edition for more).

The upcoming Easter holiday has us thinking of culinary icon Alice Waters’ way with the humble egg. Every time her daughter, Fanny, who lives in London, makes the journey to her mother’s house in Berkeley, California, she’s greeted with an egg cooked over an open flame in a hand-forged iron spoon. “It’s like the seduction of the return,” Fanny says. On a recent visit to their Berkeley kitchen, we asked Alice and Fanny about the ritual. “The egg spoon was hand-wrought by Sicilian master blacksmit...
