O sal na pedra -The salt in the stone
|As in Arthurian legend this is once and future cooking|
You can cook on it, freeze it and eat ice cream off it or serve sushi on it. However you use a block,whether you heat it, freeze it,or just use it as a vehicle to carry the food. Without you having to pre-season the food it will take on a tinge of salt and minerals that is sublime.
To test if the block is hot, paint on a dollop of olive oil.If It sizzles, just as a pat of butter sizzles when added to a hot skillet, you are ready to go.
Unlike a griddle pan this is slow cooking,it lacks the ferocity of a griddle and it is easier to see the meat or fish taking on some colour as it cooks, so you have more control over texture and flavour.Now you want one? You do don´t you, you do?
