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...
Got this for a friend. He uses it often and likes the book to introduce him to the best ways to use the salt block. It also shipped the same day I purchased it and was delivered quickly.
The shipping, packaging and products were all perfect - thanks for sending it so quickly and safely. My boyfriend loves to cook and we can't wait to create the recipes in the book and use the salt block for grilling this weekend.
I can't say how happy I am with the amazing service that Mark gave me on this particular order. My friend was overjoyed by the gift--he had been eyeing Mark's book on salt block cooking for a long time so it was the perfect choice. And I was so impressed with how much attention my request for a birthday note to be included was given. The package arrived safe and sound in Hawaii right on time and in perfect condition. Thank you again, Mark, for taking such good care of this! The Meadow, always one of my favorite shops in Portland, has my life long patronage for sure!
Received the 8x8x1.5" slab as a gift from my mom, along with the Salt Block Cooking book. My son decided to try it immediately with a recipe for cranberry-cherry scones he found online. He pre-heated the block on the stovetop, then transferred it to the oven and baked the scones. We waited in anticipation, wondering what we were going to get. The scones plumped up nicely and the aroma filled the kitchen. The bottom of the scones were slightly crispy on the bottoms and had a faint hint of Himalayan salt to them, subtle yet noticeable. They tried to escape over the edges, but all-in-all, a smashing success for our first salt block cooking experience!! Would highly recommend them.
At 7 lb 13.4 oz it holds a lot of heat, so be careful. What a gorgeous work of art, we hated to "ruin" it by cooking on it, but the experience was worth it.
