The Wizards of Öz

Things just seem to taste better when dispensed from objects made with thought and care. Like when my mom makes me a sandwich made exactly the way I make them, but for some reason her’s taste so much better. I am guessing that will be the case with this “Öz” pepper grinder by Ahmet Bektes and Koray Gelmez. They took the mortar and pestle approach to pepper grinding with this unique design. Composed of Turkish marble, this approach makes much more sense to me than those ridiculously monster sized pepper grinders you are accosted with in “finer” restaurants.
