I ordered a mystery box to share with my partner on our recent kinda vacation... I love how it was wrapped simply with brown paper and tied with twine...
Home confinement requires a ‘make your own fun’ spirit and six months without a visit to a restaurant means making dinner an experience takes some work. Enter the Himalayan salt block. It arrived pristine and intact and other worldly. Once heated on the burner to kiln like heat, it played host to filet mignon, lamb chops, asparagus, prosciutto wrapped figs and wild mushrooms. It was like Benihana with worse trained chefs! The food emerged perfectly cooked and best of all - barely any dishes to wash. Also impressive: the next day the block’s surface, while discolored by all the searing, really didn’t require much cleaning nor did retain the essence of all the items that were cooked. Looking forward to a next multi course meal.
First, the round salt block is beautiful!
This is the second one we bought, but we had put the first one away waiting for summer. We decided to buy a second one after reading the two salt block cookbooks we bought, and to support one of our favorite stores during this strange Covid time.
We prepared a Caprese salad on the new one right away. Again, beautiful! And better yet, the salad was tastier than ever.
We are looking forward to warmer weather to grill on one of the two and to serve a beautiful salad on the other.
Looking forward to visiting Andrew in the Village as soon as we are back to normal.
I am always skeptical about buying fragile items over the internet. They never seem to arrive entirely intact. In this case, my fears were not realized. My 9" round Himalayan Salt Block arrived beautifully in one piece due to the care that was taken in the packaging. It wasn't just thrown into a b ox with some bubble wrap. Instead it was carefully swaddled in two layers of padding and paper. Even Klem Kadiddlehopper couldn't have hurt this gem en route. Product performs wonderfully as well. The staff at The Meadow have earned my highest regards when it comes to the physical integrity and quality of online shopping.
