video: sally makes fragrant herb salt + other goodies

(Video link here.) Before I moved up to Harlem, the great Lynne Rosetto Kasper, host of public radio’s The Splendid Table, visited me in my old Chelsea apartment to film me making Tuscan Herb Salt. It’s one riff in The Key Three — three recipes I consider essential in every cooks repertoire — featured on Lynne’s show this week. As always, there’s lots of ideas for improvising.

Listen to the whole segment here or here. And find recipes for Foolproof Roast Chicken and Essential Chocolate Cake for Improvising.

BTW, in the background, you’ll see elements I took with me to reconfigure in the new home: my 25 year-old hand-made kitchen cabinets, my trusty U.S. Range (built like a tank, with excitingly powerful burners), and the zinc-top island. I left behind the worn sink and 10 pounds of me, lost in the renovation process and the move across from a lovely park, where I can work out in fresh air.

If you look close, you’ll also see a photograph of a thoughtful upside-down naked Japanese woman on the fridge. It’s by Yumehara Hokume. Lynne and her crew edited nothing out!

    I have a big shaker bottle of your fragrant herb salt on my counter. I use it on EVERYTHING. I make for friends and family at Christmas. Thank you, Sally!
