For me, this is a great salt for seasoning nearly everything. It gives plenty of flavor witn a relatively small amount and the texture is versatile.
I have loved this salt since I worked at The Meadow 8/9 years ago. On eggs, popcorn, veggies, pasta, the options are endless! And it’s such a better option than the oils, many of which are synthetic and don’t event contain truffles. Once you try it you’ll be hooked!
This bar has all the qualities that make a superior chocolate bar. The flavor is intense with berry undertones and the texture is very smooth with a perfect snap.
We had just returned from Anglesey where we had bought this brand sea salt at the place where it is processed, but had not bought this flavor, and I was regretting that. So it was wonderful to find it on the meadow website. We ordered it and it was here in a matter of days. We use it on everything!
I read Mark Bitterman's great book, Salted, and enjoyed it so much that I bought a hard copy and a couple of the salt kits - Starters and the Meadows Finishing Salt set - for my son for Christmas so I can't review the salts themselves.....but I did order the coffee salt for myself and it is wonderful; smokey, earthy, definite coffee base - a beautiful salt! I don't have the eloquence that Mark has when he describes salt (reading the book just for some of his beautiful expressions is worth it alone) but I would highly recommend this salt - and anything offered in the Meadows store - to anyone interested in making the most of every bite they cook and serve.
I had been gifted with your Black Truffle Sea Salt several months ago. Found it to be delicious and could not wait to share it with another friend. We've both used it on numerous dishes and would highly recommend it to any and all.
I first tried this when a friend gave it to me as a gift. Now I always keep a bottle on hand and also gift it to friends. Love it in an Italian Job or in coffee.
I love this bar. I got it and then was curious so I emailed the maker. They told me the browned butter added to the full cream buttermilk was the key. They explained that the catamelized malted milk ball finish I was getting was due to the long conche time coupled with high heat that does something to the milk sugars. It was more info than I wanted but it proved why this is the best bar I have bought in awhile.
We purchased flavored bitters and have used them several times not only in cocktails but in our coffee. Can't wait to get more. Would make great hostess gifts for the holidays
I was hunting for Piran Self Gris. I got it in record.time and it is great. Also you were one of the few sources I found. I bough the black truffle salt as hostess gifts for the hoI days for my foodie friends. Thanks I will be back!
I had never before had the opportunity to taste one of the chocolate bars from Marou. This particular bar was a delight. I am glad to have had the chance to try it. I recommend it. I continue to appreciate the fast and secure shipment from the Meadow.
I can't imagine not having this in my kitchen!
Also the customer service is one of the best I have experienced ~ Thank you!
I loved this! Some of my family members were not convinced (just too dark for them) but all the more for me to enjoy.
It's rich and creamy. Strong, but not bitter.
I very much appreciate the quick response and wonderful customer service in sending out a new bowl when one I ordered arrived chipped in shipping. The product is amazing--I am especially enjoying the deeper bowl for chocolate fondue!
I use this salt in the chocolate Manhattan recipe I got from The Meadow's web site, but my primary use is for pork chops or filets with a cocoa/ancho chile/ coffee rub. The salt intensifies the cocoa flavor on the meat and gives it a nice crunch. I love it.
I really like this salt. It imparts the flavor that you think it should, not overpowering
I became a cocktail revivalist when I retired. In my search for the best orange bitters, Dashfire came to my attention. Now it's the only one I buy. Excellent in Rye and Bonal!
I was again very pleased to receive this wonderful chocolate bar within a very few days after I ordered it. I had never experienced this bar before, but it has a delightful flavor (hard to describe really). I will certainly come back to it again. The service was superb and the packaging was very secure. Thanks again for your amazing assistance.
I can't tell you how helpful The Meadow has been as I have searched for and ordered a few bars at a time. The Castronovo Sierra Nevada Dark Milk Colombia 63% bar is one of our favorites. It arrived quickly and was packaged beautifully. I will certainly come back for more.
This bar has a subtle but powerful fruitiness, and a heavenly texture. I have never been disappointed in Areté, and this was no exception.
I so enjoyed being a member of the Chocolate Club - World's Tastiest Chocolate Delivered Straight to Your Door! from the Meadow Shop. I received chocolate I may have not picked up myself and enjoyed many surprise favorites. The selections sent were always unique and a delight to try, one by one or all at once!
Haven’t found the best cocktail for this one yet, but like having it in my cabinet anyway.
Nice to get larger quantity at better price. Always get basic salt and a special one (saffron & roasted garlic are now “must-haves!)
As mentioned before, there was a mishap in delivery when I received chocolate that wasn’t what was ordered; however, the follow up could not have been more prompt, courteous and attentive. They genuinely care about service and restored my faith in humanity in general, and chocolate specifically!
Thank you Jessica for all that you did!
After stellar customer service, the salt cellar arrived right in time for the anniversary party it was intended for, and was just as beautiful as we had hoped!
I have many usages of this delicious salt, the most common is to mortar/pestle it, then mix with unsalted nut butters.
I've used this salt in all kinds of cooking, it's very versatile and was a really good deal.
It's an amazing salt, used it on my steaks as a rub, wonderful, I will be ordering more
The Castronova White Chocolate Lemon bar was in a class all its own. Smooth, buttery, rich, .... absolutely delicious!
