Need a gift for a foodie friend? Why not bring them a molcajete? This traditional mortar is made from volcanic rock carved into a concave shape and used for the preparation of sauces and other dishes. Unchanged in design for centuries, it’s an excellent addition to any kitchen. Or if their tastes run more to the sweet side of things, consider a molinillo. This is a unique utensil used to prepare hot chocolate and other drinks by dissolving the chocolate and creating foam. It’s simple to use—simply roll the handle back and forth between your palms until you’ve achieved the desired result. Made from a single piece of wood with multiple moving rings, the molinillo is a masterpiece of traditional craftsmanship.
