References in 18th-century inventories, diaries and period recipes indicate that the colonial cook relied on various wooden utensils to prepare her meals. Spoons with deep or shallow bowls and long or short handles were common. So were wooden ladles, scoops, rolling pins, paddles for stirring kettles of laundry or soup, flat peels for removing baked goods from ovens and brooms for cleaning up. Surviving 18th-century utensils and examples in period prints and paintings provide the basis for the woodenware sold in Colonial Williamsburg. Each item depicts a typical form used in Virginia kitchens at the time of the revolution.
