Tips:

A pestle and mortar are a very useful piece of equipment in French cooking. They are often made from marble or olive wood and should be quite heavy and large so that they will last for many years.  A pestle and mortar is the ideal thing for making Aioli and Rouille sauces and makes the pounding down of garlic satisfyingly easy. The pestle and mortar is also great for crushing herbs, spices or nuts.
