A reader asked about the curved herb cutter that I mentioned in my previous post, “Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme.”
It’s called a French Messaluna Herb and Vegetable Chopper.
The curved steel blade has wooden handles on each end to allow for the fresh garden herbs to be quickly and efficiently chopped. I don’t own one but wish I did. It’s available from Amazon.com as well as Sur la Table and Williams-Sonoma and other sources. Check online. Prices range from $30 to $70-$100 and up.
This antique Mezzaluna or demi-lune, meaning “half moon,” was found in the south of France.
