In Love with Mortar(s) & Pestle(s)

Every cook has a little love affair in the kitchen—utensils that bring aroma to life, tools that make it all happen. I was delighted when Renee Schettler Rossi asked me to write about my favored kitchen item for a Valentine’s Day article on Leite’s Culinaria. It took no time for me to choose an object of love. Have a look at the website for my musings on the mortar and pestle (all six of mine sitting on our kitchen counter). And discover what other food lovers have to say about their kitchen affairs.

  1. I can’t live without my mortar and pestle. My khok and sagk en Lao. How else will I make jeows and tom mak houng? I have just one but it gets a lot use. Mine is a clay version and I have a wooden pestle, traditional Lao/thai design I think??? It was my Mom’s, she has three or four, so I took one when I moved out.
