Shop with me!

  • Pin It
If you like shopping as much as I do, you'll be glad to hear that I finally got my act together and created an Amazon store for your purchasing pleasure. I've stocked it with some of my favorite gourmet items, kitchen gadgets and cookbooks. Use the "shop" link in the header above and take a look around!

A few of the items you'll find inside:

I've visited the Camargue, the huge salt marsh in the south of France, and seen the mountains of sparkly white salt sitting by the edge of the swamp. This is my favorite finishing salt. Well, one of my favorites. I have a soft spot for salt.

My friend Franco from Sabatino Tartufi brought me a sample of this, and it's just outstanding. Toss it with hot pasta and butter, or spread it on thinly sliced toasted baguette and top with fresh ricotta.

Michael puts these little chocolate balls on frozen yogurt. They're crunchy, like tiny little KitKats (only a lot better).

I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but when I do make coffee, I prefer the simplicity of a stovetop percolator like this.

This is what I'm reading right now. I actually have a bound galley from 1989 - I was working at a magazine that reviewed some travel and food books, and the publisher sent it to us before the book was published. I've kept the galley despite the fact that it has no pictures and looks like a bad photocopy. Because the recipes are terrific, and it offers an historical perspective on African-American and Caribbean cooking I've never found anywhere else. I recommend this cookbook highly, and I'm looking forward to reading some of her others.

And there's lots more stuff in the store, too - hand-selected and curated by yours truly. I'll add to it over time, too. Happy shopping!
