I've spent the last hour looking for a pretty pestle and mortar. Because I need one to mash, bash and muddle my limes, for that mojito recipe I gave you earlier. They're just all so horrid and dull. Just because they're for bashing stuff, doesn't mean they have to be boring and ugly! Can't someone throw a pretty pattern on one?
It's taken the last hour to track this pestle and mortar down, but it's stunning and is winging it's way to me as I type. It's £27 (down from £30) from House of Fraser. I'm going to have to start keeping an eye on them.
