My flavoring of choice? Cherish
Please note that Kitchen Wands is located in British Columbia, Canada and all prices are posted in Canadian dollars.
I am living to nourish you, cherish you, I am pulsing the blood in your veins,
Feel the magic and power of surrender, To life. Uisce Beatha
This is the chorus to Cloudsong, a number from the show Riverdance. Uisce Beatha is Gaelic for ‘water of life” and the song is a tribute to Ireland’s relationship with water.
The sharing behind Kitchen Wands is that cooks at the hearth add their energy to what they are creating. When you are present and cherish the process of feeding your friends and family it shows in the final results. It is just a little step further to say adding love adds flavour but I was interested in using a different word. “I am living to nourish you, cherish you” was the source of this wand. I heard it for the first time on a visit to England when Riverdance had taken over the airwaves after the Eurovision Song contest in 1994.
The inspiration behind Kitchen Wands is that cooks working at their hearth add their energy to what is are created. I always try in some way to include the idea of being actively involved. Making the choice and adding an ingredient to a dish is that activity here. When you are present and cherish the process of feeding your friends and family it shows in the final results. It is just a little step further to say adding love adds flavour.
I played with “my spice of choice” and other wordings but the concept works best with flavouring, especially with the bottle in the artwork. If your store is in Canada, I will happily engrave this Kitchen Wand with the added vowel.
Each individually handcrafted 13 inch beech wood spoon comes via a protected, managed forest in Europe. Once in Canada, they are charmed with a laser engraver and dipped in a bath of grape seed oil and melted beeswax which brings out the grain and deepens the tone of the wood. Washing in warm water, by hand, and the occasional wipe with a food safe oil will help extend the life of a Kitchen Wand. The image is burned into the wood and will not “come off”. Over time though, as the patina of use develops, the image and the engraving on the handle “My Kitchen Wand” may soften.
The description of this design is easily accessible to customers through an information only webpage on the Kitchen Wand tag.
