The Wooden Spoon in Chicago

About Us

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.

Our Story

In fall 2001, food fanatics and co-owners, Trina and Sean Sheridan cooked up the idea to open a friendly shop that offered a top-quality line of cookware at reasonable prices, and a welcoming atmosphere for students to learn cooking skills from trained professionals.

The next year was spent selecting just the right product lines, gadgets, cooking class schedules and creating an inviting atmosphere for kitchen-phobics and culinary professionals, alike. The kitchen- the setting for Wooden Spoon cooking school- was built featuring state-of-the-art Viking appliances and a custom-designed oval countertop. Finally, a nine-foot wooden spoon was raised to grace the facade.

On December 7, 2002 the Wooden Spoon opened its doors and became a proud part of the Andersonville independent business community, and Chicago’s best location for perfect cookware, classes and fantastic private events!
