Respecting The Art of Dining Starts with Salt and Pepper
At this point, you should be able to look at your vacation rental’s kitchen and think to yourself “Gordon Ramsay wouldn’t throw too big of a fit if he were here.”
And if he does, at least he will be able to open up a bottle of wine and calm his nerves.
However, there is one thing that would deeply offend Mr. Ramsay and, more importantly, your guests who love to cook: failing to adhere to the salt and pepper shaker rule.
You didn’t think you got to pick which one gets the salt and which one gets the pepper, did you?
Here at Modern Innkeeper, we follow the salt and pepper shaker rule, which states salt goes in the shaker with the least amount of holes and pepper in the shaker with the most amount.
Why? Salt flows out easier than its counterpart; therefore, it doesn’t need as many.
Now that you know there is a method to the madness, let’s look at some nifty salt and pepper shakers!
It is with great pleasure to report these shakers follow the salt and pepper shaker rule, but just in case your guests aren’t as savvy in the kitchen as you, these shakers’ labels (“Sa” for Salt and “Pe” for pepper) leave nothing to chance.
Aside from following the salt and pepper shaker rule (thank you for respecting the art of dining, whales), one is white and one is black, so none of your guests will be asking, “Which one is which?”
The egg shakers are almost impossible to lose because they include a carton-style holder, while of course following the salt and pepper shaker rule.
An added benefit is they allow guests to put salt and pepper on their eggs with egg salt and pepper shakers.
Talk about enhancing the guest experience!
Wind-Up Robot Shakers
If your guests typically include couples cooking for each other during a romantic getaway, proceed to the next section.
Both the white robot (salt) and black robot (pepper) have winders so they can cruise around the table. So, rather than being passed, guests can wind them up and send them over to someone else.
Did dinner just get more exciting?
Well, maybe for the kids.
If at some point reading this you asked yourself, “Can’t I just get normal salt and pepper shakers?” you will be happy to know this is acceptable.
Whichever you choose, there is just one requirement: make sure it follows the salt and pepper shaker rule!
