The Basics: Salt and Pepper

So I am kinda particular about my salt and pepper. Iodized salt has been off of my table for at least 5 years. I scoff at those paper-pepper flakes that come in packets. It's kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper or nothing. (Okay, that's not true... I have an emergency Morton's set in the pantry. And actually had to use it a few weeks ago when I didn't realize we were out of peppercorns!)
We've had good luck with a stainless/wood pepper grinder and bamboo salt cellar/ramekins from Crate&Barrel. It may seem weird to some of our guests that we pinch our salt instead of shaking... but they soon get over it.
