Spoons as an object hold a status as being extremely recognizable and readily associated with eating and tasting. A set of 7 spoons were manufactured to investigate the taste of inedible materials as part of Materials Library Founder, Zoe Laughlin’s PhD thesis. The spoon is a stainless steel teaspoon that has been electroplated with a layer of gold 10 microns thick. Gold is not naturally present in foodstuffs but can be added to food with no ill effects to the consumer.
