  • This is actually a bit of an inside joke at my employer, which once published an artsy coffee-table book on silver nutmeg graters.

    Imagine my surprise to read this, about possets in the seventeenth century:

    "Soon, it would be considered the height of elegance to carry a little silver nutmeg grater in your pocket -- one quick rasp of the nut over your drink, your dish of cream or cup of chocolate transformed it into a rather addictive kind of aromatic heaven."
