Ted’s Tip No. 164

Elevate simple small spuds by smashing them and adding Parmigiano-Reggiano. Cut potatoes in half, coat with extra virgin olive oil, salt & pepper on a sheet pan. Add to a 400 degree oven. Bake until soft and golden. Take out of oven, carefully press a fork over the top creating crevasses for the cheese to melt into. Sprinkle Parm liberally about. Pop back into oven for a few minutes to let the cheese melt.



 

 

Salted Butter

Salt and butter can be a match made in the culinary heavens. This corn on the cob season, I like to take a pat of unsalted butter and douse it with really good chunky salt, like French fleur de sel, English Maldon or US Jacobsen. That way you can control how salty you get your butter. Plus I love how it looks on the table in a little dish. Easy for guests to pass around. Also enjoyable next time you serve a baguette with your meal. Put a good sized piece of butter with chunks of salt atop next to it–I promise it will be gone once it makes its way around the table.



 

 

Peugeot Salt & Pepper Grinders at WK

Since 1840, in the heart of Doubs in France, Peugeot has designed and manufactured some of the very finest instruments for grinding salt and pepper. Plus they look ever so stylish gracing your kitchen counter and also work beautifully to go straight to the dining table. Excited to have just added these to our shop shelves.  



 

 

Jacobsen Pure Kosher Sea Salt

20150529-030940.jpg Very excited to see these arrived while we were in New York. We are huge fans of Netarts Bay, Oregon based Jacobsen Salt Co. at Watson Kennedy. Their flake finishing salt has become a classic. Now, with the addition of this pure Kosher sea salt, they will now take up 2 spots on our kitchen shelves. Hand-harvested from the cold waters off the Oregon Coast. Sure to become a staple. Using the best salt possible really does bring out the most in your cooking. And you know this packaging just made me swoon. Cool enough to leave out on open shelving. They always just get it right, inside and out.



 

 

Amola Bloody Mary Salt

20150331-071154.jpg Just in time for Easter week-end festivities, comes this perfectly packaged Bloody Mary salt. Whether a pinch is added to the cocktail or rimmed on the glass, this is just all good stuff–sea salt, heritage bacon, sundried tomato, serrano pepper, celery seed. Created by the AMOLA company on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC. Again, one of my favorite combos of what is on the outside of the box is as good as what is inside. Stellar, stellar packaging to add to a grown-up Easter basket, bring as a host/hostess gift, or just keep for yourself.



 

 

Pepper & Salted

20130329-065147.jpg Food books can make such great gifts. The above 2, ‘Salted’ and ‘Pepper’ delve deep into the history of both, while also being cool enough to leave out on the coffee table. Filled with recipes, they are also interesting cookbooks. The duo wrapped together makes for a quite special combo gift. We had a customer the other day buy the ‘Pepper’ book and we tied off a small pepper grinder to the package, which made for a festive, clever, and oh so useful gift.
