I am SO lucky!! My friend Toni travels all over Europe with her work. We had dinner with her and her husband Bill, who are long time friends, this past week on the lower East side. She arrived at the restaurant carrying a shopping bag. You know I mainly use French salt when I cook. It is so expensive here and so inexpensive there. So sometime ago, I had asked her to pick up some when she was in France next, but I didn’t expect the other gifts!! She got me the bag of “everyday salt” and then the Fleur De Sel – a special finishing salt.
The truffles and saffron are from Spain. One of our designers, Carlota, is from Catalonia and she said this is the exact saffron that her mother uses and the truffle brand, her grandmother uses, and is actually from Catalonia! I can’t wait to use them!! Maybe tonight, the truffles on pasta?
Thank you Toni!!
