There used to be a time when asking for a salt shaker meant the chef didn’t add enough flavor.
Today, some cooks choose to leave the seasoning unfinished in the kitchen to allow you to put the final touch on yourself using artisan finishing salts...
These premium options aren’t exclusively for self-proclaimed foodies like Melanie. Mark Bitterman has literally written a book on salt and owns a store which specializes in artisan options.
“We sell about 120 different kinds of salt from all over the world and really there are thousands and thousands of different types,” said Bitterman.
