Wooden spoon

Soop | Apr 6, 2009 04:27 AM

My Girlfriend told me that wooden spoons are usually only used in baking, and the reasoning she gave was that meat could get trapped in the grain of the wood and be dangerous.
I've never heard this, and obviously, a butchers block is wood.

Is there any truth to this? I bought a lovely new spoon yesterday (below) to use with my LC enamelled cookware.
