A Find

Like most women, I love to shop. But I don’t love to shop for clothes or shoes or handbags. Forget fashion, my sprees are for gourmet ingredients and cookware. I go out of my way to explore the latest and greatest foodie shops. Yesterday, I discovered The Meadow, and it’s great. It’s a tiny space, but it’s packed with so many goodies, I managed to spend nearly an hour browsing. There’s a huge, and I mean huge, selection of salts from around the world.

Now, I’m a bit of a salt freak, I was into finishing salts before they became all the rage, but even I’ve never seen such a mind-boggling assortment anywhere. And the variety of peppercorns at The Meadow is so vast, that I had to get a guided tour.

This fun little store also stocks Himalayan pink salt blocks (for use as serving platters), wine, and gourmet chocolate. Although I was tempted to buy much, much more, I left with only a small bottle of fine quality white peppercorns. I’m sure I’ll find an excuse to go back soon, those salt blocks sure do sound intriguing…
