Part 4 Disaster as Heston spoon breaks at last minute
Heston Blumenthal’s Whittled Spoons.
How did that happen?
It was all was going so well then disaster struck, a spoon breaks after spending many hours of work on it. On the stem of the spoon being whittled, a knot appeared. This produced a weak spot and I ended up with two pieces. Now this would have been o.k. normally if I had a large amount of timber to use, but unfortunately I did not. This small amount of myrrh wood had come all the way from Oman.
Getting on a plane and flying out to Oman to get more myrrh wood was not an option.
