When I first saw Jaimie Oliver on TV he was really young. That’s when his show was called the Naked Chef (a title he later learned to hate). Anyway… he had this wondrous cooking device. A mortar and pestle (or pestle and mortar if you’re British). He used it to smash up herbs and garlic and make the most fantastic looking simple food. I had to have one. The ones at the fancy cooking stores were expensive and I’m cheap so I went without this kitchen tool for a long time. That was until I found this hunk of green granite at a Chinese grocery store for $25 bucks. Now it’s mine and I use it for a lot of cooking jobs. I’m certain that I’ll never have to buy another. It’s freakin indestructible.
