Asking someone who cooks what their favorite kitchen tool will most definitely bring a Joy of Cooking worthy monologue. Possibly with a Julia Child voice. I'm not sure how many glasses of wine in this question is, so it's possible.
I have a favorite wooden spoon. A favorite blender. A favorite linen dish towel (Thank you very much Elizabeth for the cooking conversion chart tea towel). You get the picture. But in order for us to get on with this recipe, I particularly like the mandolin. Or as my husband once got confused and named it...a banjo. Very close.
A mandolin allows super thin slices of everything. It's what I used for this black radish salad, dainty hour devours and it's perfect for creating veggie pasta noodles. When the weather gets chilly and your craving a cozy herb dish, I think it's a great idea to use vegetables to create 'pasta' for a nutrient rich dish.
