For the Ennstal-Classic founder Michael Mass and Ludwiga Drucker took FormulaOne racer Jarno Trulli on board. 280 spoons of the wine NOMEN EST OMEN from his vinery Castorani were manifactured."We're happy that a famous racing driver has supported us with his wine" so the founders. Even Peter Spak from HINK pastry was keen and became a part of this spoon-edition."Because creativity, passion and a mind for dining culture characterize our assortment, we wanted to support the idea of those spoons from it's start."
The once so important piece of cutlery get revived with this innovative kind of manifacturing. Back in the old days every guest brought their own cutlery with them. People were especially proud of their own spoons which they took good care of. The saying "Den Löffel abgeben" translated into "To cede the spoon" meaning "To peg out" originated at this time. The spoon was so precious that people bequested it to the younger generations.
With TheCookingSpoon we want every spoon owner to be proud of this important piece of cutlery again.

It’s the first TheCookingSpoon-series in cooperation between a celebrated chef and an eminent vintner. One is Toni Mörwald, one of Austria’s top 3-toque chefs. And the other distinguished vintner Toni Bauer from Feuersbrunn.
Both share a passion for their products and for culinary delights. Now they also share their very own, hand-made cooking spoon from Austrian company BarriqueAffairs, from a limited edition capped at 100. The treasured collector pieces represent the relationship to high-quality wine, food and cooking in the expression of sustainable crafts work.
The haptic and sensuous feel of the wood, how it has been worked and its smell tells the individual story of each and every cooking spoon. The outer aroma layer disseminates its scent and the singular color distinguishes it.
TheCookingSpoon are hand-made from valuable barriques/wine barrels from selected (Austrian) wineries. Depending on the size of the barrel, 20 to 30 cooking spoons can be produced. The barrel staves are catalogued per winery and each cooking spoon receives a serial number of the back of its handle, referencing the name of the winery and the wine matured in it. A certificate in the package assets the authenticity of the spoon
