The Charleston Rice Spoon - the Quintessential Gift

The story of the Charleston Rice Spoon makes for a great story that dates to the beginning of our city - 1670. This oversized spoon actually is a proper English stuffing spoon. As Carolina Gold rice made the planters of the Lowcountry immense wealth in the 18th Centruy, rice became the honored item on the table, always served at the Charleston “Two O’Clock Dinner” and at supper.

Today, it is the perfect gift and is a symbol, when given, of understanding the customs of the lowcountry.

Consider pairing this with the Charleston Receipts Cookbook and a bag of Carolina Gold Rice.
