Le Creuset Marseille Mortar And Pestle Set - PG40500459
Mortars have been used around the world for centuries, from Asia and Europe
to the earliest populations of North and South America. The friction of the
mortar’s rough ceramic interior against the grinding action of the pestle releases
the full flavor of herbs and spices, while also changing the texture and consistency
of pesto and other dishes. The stoneware mortar & pestle is inspired by this
age-old technique of careful preparation, with an unglazed interior that is
abrasive enough to effectively break down contents, yet durable enough withstand
the friction of repeated grinding.
