Try your hand at making a Breton crêpe, or galette, the savory cousin of the sweet crêpe. These large, thin delectable delights require a gentle hand to flip without tearing, and Pacific Merchants offers just that with this Olivewood Galette Spatula. Flipping galettes with a regular spatula inevitably results in a torn and folded mess. The tapered edges of this wood galette spatula are designed to easily slide underneath without scratching the pan, while the long, flat design ensures that your precious meal won’t jump ship onto the floor. Its symmetry and light weight make flipping galettes with either hand a breeze. With this wood spatula in one hand and a Beechwood Crêpe Spreader in the other, you’re on your way to creating perfect Brittany-style galettes that will leave family and friends in awe. Drizzle your galettes in honey or smear with a dollop of salted caramel butter, and present on a wood plate for a rustic flourish.
French wood utensils and tools have a rich history and an important place in culinary culture. All our French wood spoons, tools, and spatulas are lovingly hand-crafted and imported from France, and thus are of the highest quality and beauty. Wood utensils will not discolor food, alter taste, conduct heat, or melt. Here at Pacific Merchants, we believe in the “Enduring Nature of Things Well Made,” and nature itself has provided a material in line with this belief. Olivewood is extremely strong and dense, with a tight grain that resists fraying edges. Cleaning is simple; wash with warm water and allow to air dry.
- Hand crafted in France by small, artisan factories owned by families who have carved wood into spoons, spatulas and utensils for generations
- Each piece has its own stamp of quality with the word "France" burned into each handle
- Safe for non-stick cookware surfaces, porcelain, ceramic, glass or enamel and the hardness of the wood means they will resist staining or picking up odors
- French beech wood is sourced from known, legal and well-managed timber sources
- Simply wash with warm soapy water and air dry but if the wood ever appears dry, simply coat with a non-toxic mineral oil to replenish its beauty and rich look
French olive wood spoons and spatulas are the world renowned classics that everyone grew up with. Your mom probably used one as they are the workhorse of wooden utensils for cooking, baking, stirring, serving and disciplining children (just kidding) for generations. French made olive wooden spatulas are an attractive yet functional way to serve, bake and will certainly add joie de vivre to your family events or dinner parties. France is commonly known as the preeminent source for classically shaped, high-quality wooden spoons and spatulas as compared to anywhere else on the globe. Pacific Merchants sources olive wood from small, family-run artisan factories who value quality wood-working versus simply the speed of production. The world-class skill of carving hardwood spatulas and crafting small wooden accessories has been proudly passed down from generation to generation. If you look carefully, you will notice distinct carving marks somewhere on each piece. The natural features of the olive wood grain means no two pieces look the same. Each olive wood spoon and spatula made in France has natural imperfections in the wood grain. These "beauty marks" are normal and add character and charm to each piece, almost like a sculptural piece of art. The sanded smooth handles feel comfortable and easy in your hand and will not become hot when rested on the side of a boiling pot. Olive wood is resistant to heat and picking up odors. Each piece has its own stamp of quality with the word "France" burned into each handle, denoting the pride and providence of wooden spatulas made In France. Take care of your olive wood wooden spatula and you will enjoy using it for years and years. C'est magnifique!
