    I've no idea what a pasta wood roll is, but I don't think I could eat it.

    A wooden spoon is used for stirring

    I mean the thing you use to "roll out a dough/ pie dough" which is usually made by wood and has a roll tool shape...But yes, since Iīll spend some of my time here( while working on other stuff) Iīd like to have a more interesting and opinionated thread..

    Re: collocations with curmudgeon..

    So there is going to be a duel, with rolling pins and wooden spoons at 50 paces? Who knew this forum could get so exciting? I see that Avalon referred to Curmudgeon as "Cranky" - new nickname, or Freudian slip?


    You want controversy, here you go:
