Bitters are not just for cocktails. In fact, historically-speaking, before the prohibition, they were a standard part of every pantry - and used extensively in cooking and baking. Bitters add a flavor and bitter component that make many dishes sing! They include aromatics, citrus, and other unique flavors you just won't find anywhere else. But we don't just have bitters either, we have syrups, cherries, and more! Take a look in the DRINKS & COCKTAIL MIXERS aisle as well.

You have a knack for writing and should consider writing books, and or team up with David Leibovitz (old pastry chef at Chez Panisse…who now lives in Paris)….he has a wonderful news letter also.  I always take my time reading both of your newsletter ( yours and his)  as there is so much care put into them.
