So, I'm feeling incorrect: we went to a restaurant recently that had a bowl of salt and one of ground pepper on the table, rather than shakers. Each had an itty bitty spoon to go with it. I found that it was very hard to control a proper sprinkle or dusting of either salt of pepper from the spoon.
What do you all think is the best/most proper way to handle such an arrangement? (I was tempted to just take a pinch with my fingers, but I'm betting that a lot of people wouldn't be happy with that.)
Thanks for the guidance!
