Nice Piece of Desk Furniture

5out of 5

Primary use: Personal

Was this a gift?: No

The blotter is very well made with high-quality leather, as you’d expect from Bosca. The pad itself is made from a rather heavy, but flexible piece of linoleum which is an excellent backer for even the most demanding fountain-pen writer. Me, for instance.

You’ll need to supply and trim your own blotter paper.

You can spend a lot more on a desk blotter, but can’t get better. If you want to dress your desk with the best possible furnishings this is as good as it gets; and at a reasonable price to boot.

Very highly recommended, without reservation.

    What is Cook Food Good?

    What’s this site about? It’s about a lot of things
    Forcing myself to work out issues relating to writing a cookbook: COOK FOOD GOOD: American Cooking and Technique for Beginners and Intermediates.
    Getting feedback on my work from you.
    Discussions on basic and not-so-basic techniques. The recipes here are very technique driven. Similarly, the idea behind the book is to be far more about the how than the what – with the goal of teaching you to create your own recipes and tweak other people’s, confidently and successfully.
    How to cook better, as it relates to you (and me too). That is, taking a beginner or advanced beginner to good, restaurant quality. Mostly this will be (more or less) French technique and (more or less) American food. But only mostly, more or less.
    Recipes for this, that and the other.
    Knives and all about sharpening them (which have somehow become a subject on which I frequently get asked for advice): How to choose and how to use.
    The first Cook Food Good Blog was hosted by the website, Chef Talk. However, CT, removed its blog section. If you’re interested in bad writing, poor punctuation and ancient history, you’ll find the old CT posts archived here. One thing about posting on CT, was that it acted as a sort of language and attitude super-ego. Don’t count on it here. This is naked id.
