#13 I miss sale grosso

This might sound silly but I miss sale grosso; kosher salt is similar but not the same.

Many people think that you can always use sale fino, regular table salt.

But this is not true.

Sale grosso is a crucial ingredient for focaccia salata or focaccina or schiacciata

You need to put a generous pugno (lit. ‘kick’) of sale grosso into boiling water before pasta.

and it is perfect for a scrub (anti-cellulite!)

…Salis et sapientia
