And now, what I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for  … the answer to last week’s “What is it Wednesday” !

The featured item was ….

A Garlic Press

Another family heirloom – nothing fancy, just a good, old fashioned garlic press.

Once again, found down in the basement (isn’t that where all great kitchen treasures are found?) This garlic press gets used at least 3 or 4 times a week. It’s not a pretty looking kitchen gadget. Not a particularly eye catching design, not a cool colour … it’s definitely not flashy! It’s down right utilitarian, but it does work great!

The book I’m reading right now, Kitchen Confidential, by Anthony Bourdain, has referred to the garlic press as an abomination. Well … I will disagree with that. I think the garlic press still has a place in today’s kitchen, maybe not in Mr. Bourdain’s, but it sure does in mine (Diane’s!)    🙂
