4 Pairs Prue’s World Bamboo Chopsticks with Ceramic Rests
Product number: 26446
With naturally attractive patina of bamboo, and a flash of red at the ends to make them stand out, our Prue’s World Bamboo Chopsticks Set is the perfect companion to any style of Oriental cuisine.
Polished to the perfect shape, the four pairs of tapered, Japanese-style chopsticks have been crafted from naturally antibacterial, ultra-durable crushed bamboo which gives them a distinctive stripy look to match the rest of the Prue’s World range, while the glazed ceramic rests made sure that the tips won’t make your tabletop sticky if you put them down between mouthfuls.
The crushing process gives the strand-woven wooden surfaces a distinctive striped pattern that’s unique to every piece, and makes it even more hard wearing than anything made from ‘standard’ bamboo.
About our Prue’s World range
We tell anyone who’ll listen – we love to cook and can think of nothing better than finding creative, authentic kitchen tools that make cooking a joyful experience. So when Prue Leith approached us to collaborate on an exciting new range inspired by her trips around the world, we thought all of our birthdays had come at once!
Prue has been everywhere. She’s had an amazing life of cookery and adventure, and her culinary voyages have been a huge influence in this range’s creation. As well as being a passionate chef, founder of Leiths School of Food and Wine, TV personality, restaurateur and writer, she’s a globetrotter with a love of foods from afar, and the cookware in her own kitchen has been cherry-picked from her trips around the world.
A self-confessed Lakeland fan, Prue invited us into her home and we were like children in a sweet shop, exploring her vast, eclectic cookware kit for inspiration. Her wonderful stories behind each piece, as well as Prue’s exacting guidance, has resulted in a range that’s as interesting and colourful as Prue herself.
Prue says “I want everyone to experience the pleasure and satisfaction of producing food to share with others.” Prue tested every item herself to ensure everything worked as it should, and if something wasn’t quite right, she helped us make it perfect.
Made from attractive crushed bamboo zebra wood, ceramics and durable metals, everything in Prue’s global cookware collection is practical enough for everyday use, and will work brilliantly for all of your own culinary adventures. Accented with a pop of vibrant red, they make fabulous gifts for creative cooks, too.
Technically a grass, bamboo shares many of the properties of wood. Dense, durable and water-resistant, bamboo is very hard-wearing, shrugging off stains and marks, which makes it ideal for kitchen utensils. Fast-growing bamboo is the ultimate sustainable wood source, growing to maturity in just three to six years and providing a steady income to its growers – so it’s a great alternative to traditional, slow-growing timbers that can take decades to mature.
(The natural antibacterial properties of hardwood have been proven after extensive testing in American university research labs, notably Dean O. Cliver and his team at the Food Research Institute of Wisconsin-Madison University.)
