A quintessential item in the Valencian kitchen is this classic Valencian mortar & pestle. This yellowish colored mortar with "splashes" of green on all 4 sides can be virtually seen in any kitchen in the Valencian province, many kitchens you would find various sizes. These come from Manises, a small town outside of the city of Valencia. In Valencia, this would surely be used for making garlic mayonnaise which is nothing like you are going to buy from a supermarket here. These are a wonderful kitchen tool and a great gift for the cook in your life!
Large is 6.125" X 6.125" X 3.75", with a 7.5" pestle
