We are excited to share this cookbook with our customers because Andy Baraghani shares some of the same values as Gneiss Spice. One, he has a mortar and pestle collection (we thought we were the only ones!). We sell a few different ones on our site and have many varieties in our own kitchens. Two, like Gneiss Spice, he does not believe in paper towels. He says "You want a stack of old kitchen towels at the ready. A BIG stack. I'm not a paper-towel guy--I only use them to blot meat or drain oil from just-fried things. I use kitchen towels to wipe the counters, the carry a hot pot of water, to clean off the cutting board, to stabilize a bowl for aioli, to wipe my knife between tasks."
