The Wooden Spoon


A highlight of one of Chicago's top dining and shopping destinations is Andersonville's charming The Wooden Spoon. Family owned and operated "the Spoon," as regulars call it, has been a leading source for kitchen products and cooking classes in Chicago since 2002.

Thoughtfully chosen products range from high-end bakeware lines such as Le Creuset to small and handy gadgets like a garlic twist.

The educational and entertaining classes at The Wooden Spoon give students the skills for a lifetime of culinary enjoyment. The Wooden Spoon is also a top-tier venue for corporate and private events.

The quaint, wood-floored, showroom precedes a beautiful demonstration kitchen with top of the line fixtures and equipment. The outside patio is lush with plants and anchored by a mosaic tiled wood-burning pizza oven and 40-inch outdoor grill.

Finally, the Coach House, features a charming bar for private events and a rooftop garden where many of the ingredients for the classes are grown.

The Wooden Spoon is open six days a week from Tuesday-Sunday with classes throughout the week.

Imagine cobblestone streets aglow beneath the amber hue of dim streetlights. Just the crisp fall breeze is between you and a breath taking view of the Eiffel Tower. Swap the streets of Paris for Clark Street, and you have a Paris Bistro at The Wooden Spoon. We will indulge in our favorite sidewalk bistro cuisine from the City of Light. You know they say Chicago is the Paris of the Midwest...don’t they?
