About The Spoon Whisperer.

Hi - I’m Ross Wirth - a home cook who is also a foodie, traveler, architecture nerd, and gadget lover.

I’ve been cooking at home for as long as I can remember - as a kid I remember attending a local cooking class where I learned to make an English muffin pizza. In middle or high school I remember making dinner for the family - fried (egg) noodles or broccoli parmesan spaghetti - and I still make a simple citrus chicken I learned around that time. I have fond memories of making pasta from scratch with my mom. I learned from the likes of Food Network, Hello Fresh, and Plated. Recently I’ve learned a lot from food YouTube.

My offer to host a pandemic virtual Italian cooking class led to a dry run with friends. Their raving led to a cooking class for families who couldn’t get together over the holidays - and a side hustle was born.

Why “The Spoon Whisperer”? The Spoon Whisperer represents ultimate hospitality and the experience of making someone feel at home when they are enjoying a comforting meal with you. Specifically, it’s the nickname I coined on the first visit to my favorite Chicago restaurant @Smyth. The service was perfect - so perfect - in fact that the woman bringing silverware recognized I ate with my left hand and started placing my spoons on the left - The Spoon Whisperer. I use it here to represent the hospitality I share with you!
