Our story

The Cook in Wood story has its roots in La Rioja, a land renowned for its wine and gastronomy, and now also for our smoking products. Our company was born from a vision in 2013, when they decided to give new life to oak barrels, bringing out their exquisite flavours to create a diverse range of gastronomic products. From wood sawdust, wood chips to pressed smoked wood, each Cook in Wood product carries the essence of tradition and innovation.

Our range includes wood chips, woodchips, barrel stave boards, sawdust, pressed wood (Foodie Power Blocks), charcoal, accessories and firewood for pizza ovens and bakeries. All are available in oak barrel flavours: red wine, whisky, cognac, sherry wine, sweet white wine. We have also introduced wood from Mediterranean trees such as: olive, peach, almond, or citrus.

What makes us unique?

Excellence in quality

With over 15 years of experience in smoking, we have developed a wide range of high quality products that satisfy barbecue enthusiasts, top chefs and even the smoking industry.

Selection of raw materials

Our partnerships with distilleries and wineries in South West Europe allow us to select the best. This proximity to origin allows us to ensure the high quality of our raw materials.

Commitment to sustainability

We pride ourselves on our proprietary flavour preservation process and commitment to sustainable practices. All the wood we use comes from annual tree pruning or reused oak barrels. We have a deep respect for craftsmanship and culinary traditions, which is reflected in every Cook in Wood product.


How do we make our products?

Making our products is an art that starts with the careful selection of each barrel and the wood from the fruit trees. The oak barrels are dismantled by hand and, after a process of selection and cleaning, are turned into chips that preserve the intense flavours of the wine and distillates. This patented method, developed with winemakers in La Rioja, ensures that each piece retains its distinctive aroma in a natural and sustainable way.
COOK IN WOOD products are FSC certified.

As for the fruitwood, it comes exclusively from annual cuttings , a 100% renewable source. The wood is naturally dried to a moisture content of less than 10% and then chopped, 100% natural.
