Berard France Pestle & Mortar - 18cm
This handmade Berard olivewood pestle and mortar is perfect for the person who loves to cook from scratch. These are ancient tools that no modern kitchen should be without - they're handy for everything from cracking peppercorns and bruising herbs to making pesto. Also, the extremely hard surface of the olive wood makes this mortar and pestle perfect for crushing garlic and spices. With a stunning natural grain, no two pieces are the same meaning they make a beautiful feature within any kitchen and they make ideal gifts. The natural oils within olive wood also kill bacteria making them more hygienic than other woods or plastic. The 18cm size makes it brilliant for creating rubs, marinades, tapenades and seasoning at home.
Since 1892, Berard France has been designing and handcrafting exquisite wooden kitchen accessories. Marius Berard started the family business working with local loggers to acquire the wood species he needed to design these beautiful wooden kitchen tools. Located in the Drome Provence, in the south-eastern part of France, the quality of Berard products are the result of century know-how, where master artisans use traditional methods and shapes. These materials are then celebrated in the kitchen pieces Berard France creates. While also devoting itself to environmental sustainability by using 100% of the woods they source, most of the work for Berard France is also done locally. Each piece is carefully handcrafted to meet Bérard’s high standard of quality. Made in Albania from the finest olive wood, these handcrafted utensils offer original beauty (no two are identical) and exceptional convenience in the kitchen.
