all you need to toast, crush & blend spices

spice tools

Spices are often underused in western cooking, we opt for jars of pre-ground spices despite that spices loose their aroma quickly once they are ground. The aim of this project is to create tools to make their daily use easier by providing everything at hand to grind, toast, measure, mix and purée. Cast iron is ideal for the mortars thanks to its weight and the casting method allows to add texture that will help grinding and grating. 

Project realized at ÉCAL / 2015
