Gourmet Coconut Bowls and Spoons (from Vie!)

Gourmet Coconut Bowls and Spoons (from Vie!) Posted on 16/06/20192 Comments
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

You will by now know that I very recently moved, solo (well, along with Vulpe), into a new apartment just outside of Manchester city centre. Just before that happened I was contacted by the kind folks over at Vie, and asked if I’d like to try their bowls and spoons made from handcrafted reclaimed coconut shells. Given that I would shortly be moving I said YES PLEASE and wondered where I would put them in my lovely new place.

I received this product in exchange for writing a review on the blog, however, all the thoughts and opinions expressed in this blog post are 100% mine!

The bowls are entirely natural and handcrafted, sustainably made from the shells that are discarded when coconuts are processed. Eco-friendly and hardwearing, they’re suitable for eating/serving or decoration (so long as you make sure to rinse them in warm soapy water first). Because they are handmade from reclaimed coconut shells each bowl is unique with its own colour, shape, design, and pattern.

I am also quite enamoured with the wooden spoons, carved from coconut shells and then polished with coconut oil. A very handsome set indeed, and perfect for a vegan chilli bowl with herbed potatoes!

You can buy Vie’s coconut bowls online via their website. For 15% off anything on the website use code JMARIE15. Woohoo!

  1. I have seen coconut bowls around, but I always worry that I will just break them. They look fragile. Are they fairly hardy?
