    I had purchased some French finishing salt and grey salt at Penskys(sp?) a while back while we were in Scottsdale and thought I was ‘the bomb’ tossing off these terms . But whoa! This is a whole other dimension and I for one cannot wait to get out there and visit this place! We leave ready or not in 2 wks. All the fabulous places you have written about on this blog we will be able to visit and taste and celebrate! Hugs Taryn, you and Amy do a fantastic job!
