Michael Calore: Is it granular, like salt, like a seasoning?

Andrew Couts: Yes. It’s like the most finely ground sea salt with various herbs and some other spices. I don’t know exactly what’s in it. Unlike my wife, I don’t read Italian. Whatever’s in the ingredients list is still a mystery to me, but it’s a delicious mystery.

Michael Calore: Very nice.

Lauren Goode: That sounds amazing. Where do you get it from? Well, it sounds like your wife brought it back from Italy, but if you run out, where do you get it here in the States?

Andrew Couts: You can just buy it online from various Italian specialty stores. I believe she got it at the place where they make it, but it’s in Parma, I believe, and where there’s Parmigiano Reggiano is made, where there’s prosciutto.

Michael Calore: Prosciutto.

Andrew Couts: Giant … Yeah, it’s all in the world of delicious, savory Italian food, but you can buy it online.

Lauren Goode: Nice.

Michael Calore: I’m extremely hungry now.

Lauren Goode: I bet Lucca has it.

Michael Calore: Yeah, maybe. Maybe. I was going to say it’s like Italian Za’atar.

Lauren Goode: Sounds like it.

Michael Calore: OK. Yeah. I’m going to be putting that on my avocado toast from now on most likely. Thank you.

Andrew Couts: Great call.

Michael Calore: Lauren, what’s your recommendation?

Lauren Goode: My recommendation is a very, very late recommendation. Back in 2022, a lot of people were making a fuss about this book. I finally got around to reading it. Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow.

Michael Calore: Yes.

Lauren Goode: Yeah, that’s great.

Michael Calore: It’s about video games?

Lauren Goode: It is about video games, but it’s really about friendship. It’s about a few characters, two in particular, who are childhood friends, and their friendship extends into adulthood. It’s an on-again, off-again friendship, but they’re also video game collaborators and it’s incredibly touching. It’s a good read.

Michael Calore: Who’s the author?

Lauren Goode: It’s written by Gabrielle Zevin.

Michael Calore: Nice. It’s out in paperback now probably.

Lauren Goode: I know. I have the hardcover because I was ambitiously trying to read it when it first came out, but it’s probably out in paperback by now.

Michael Calore: Nice.

Lauren Goode: Yeah. I haven’t gone down the rabbit hole on this ship, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s been optioned to turn into some kind of derivative work, if you will.

Michael Calore: Great. I look forward to Netflix 2027.

Lauren Goode: Yeah. If anyone has not read Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, probably all of you have, once again, I’m very behind when we’re not reading 88-page …

Michael Calore: DOJ files.

Lauren Goode: Lawsuit filings, another dissertations for people to read, I mean, all that stuff. I recommend checking it out. Mike, what’s your recommendation?
