The herbal kitchen sink. Imagine a sink-erator that doubles as a food processor. As your garden fresh herbs await rinsing, this anxious basin magically switches it’s grinder on– we admit, this image is a little frightening, but bear with us–and everything (dill, fennel, mint, oregano and rosemary) gets sucked into this whirlpool of macerating power, only to be spit back up, an invisible fountain of scent. The salsa verde flies, specks of fresh green fronds and leaves speckling the countertop, and in through the window a sea garden breeze wafts in to join the olfactive fray. The dry spice of nutmeg dusts the floating effervescence of petitgrain, while the briny sweetness of amber reaches our noses through a widely spaced screen of cedar and balsam woods. Piper Nigrum is defined by a great, rousing texture, that burnishes any latent optimism. Sweet, spicy, bitter, green and deeply resinous, this kitchen craft is a balm for the soul.
