Bread lame cutter- for scoring french bread +rustic bread loaves...make your 5 second over night rustic loaves look like they came from a real boulangerie
French Bread pan with all the glorious little holes for that classic french bread texture. I suggest buying two pans. why? It will take up the same amount of space, and who only needs 2 loaves? One will be eaten right away with butter or bruschetta or olive oil and this crunchy garlic and the second+third with dinner. Oh! your neighbor stopped by to drop off an unexpected treat? no worries, greet her with your 4th loaf. no one ever was sorry they had an extra loaf of warm french bread.
This Season salt is dannnnnnnng good. my friend Stefanie gave it to me one year for a Christmas treat + a box of her freshly laid eggs. so good on bread, so good on a scramble, avocado toast, garlic cheesy bread or mac n cheese.
Need a new basting brush you can actually wash? cool. Get a couple of these and you are good to go. I have one labeled for savory and one for sweet. You know, just in case the kiddies are doing the dishes this week.
I found a set of my favvvorrrite salts I got individually-collected when I was in Iceland shooting a hair commercial. I couldnt put one or two of them on here because come on. Its like picking a favorite child. And who could (ok its violet) do that.
