A toolbox of finishing and cooking salts for every kitchen, every day PLUS Mark Bitterman's best-selling book, Craft Salt Cooking!
The perfect gift: our¬†starter set of six gourmet sea salts and a copy of Mark Bitterman's¬†best-selling recipe¬†book, Craft Salt Cooking. Salt is the most powerful ingredient in the kitchen. Every natural salt has its own personality - minerals, moisture content, color, and crystals as diverse as snowflakes. Take advantage of these characteristics and suddenly a whole new vista of culinary opportunities presents itself. Using the right salt the right way is the easiest and most cost-effective way to celebrate every meal.
The Starter Set includes 3 salts for everyday cooking and seasoning and 3 salts for sparkle and pizzazz, plus The Selmelier's Guide to Finishing¬†Salt by Mark Bitterman.
Bitterman's Fleur de Sel - Delicate, irregular crystals for eggs, meats, veggies, pastas, soups. The ultimate multi-purpose sea salt!
Bitterman's Sel Gris - Bold, moist mineral rich salt with balanced taste for steaks, roasts, beans, brines, pasta water. The ultimate salt for all-purpose cooking, and a great replacement for commercial kosher salts.
Bitterman's Flake - Uniquely frothy, three dimensional crystal unlike any other finishing salt salt we have encountered.
Black Lava - Jumbled black flakes add visual and textural pizzazz on fruit, pasta, potato and green salads. Also ideal as a finishing touch on creamy soups.
Molokai Red - Coarse red grains from Hawaii for sprinkling on top of fresh fish, fruit, avocados!
Alaska Alder Smoked - Delicate, pyramidal crystals cold smoked over alder wood. Fresh, almost sweet flavor with a touch of smoke to boot.

I purchased this set for our son's upcoming birthday, so he hasn't seen it yet. But I'm very pleased with the service, careful packaging, and prompt delivery...now for the big reveal soon!
The salt is good but it comes in a plastic pouch that is not easily sealed. This product would have a much better value if it came in a glass container with a wood or cork lid. It would also make it easier to store and access.
Hi Micheal, thanks for your review! Our Starter Salt Set comes only in metal tin or glass jar options (with cork or glass lids!). It seems your review is for another product, perhaps our Bitterman Salt boxes, in which the salt is stored in a plastic bag with a recyclable cardboard box. We find customers really like this option, as the boxes store easily. We recommend storing all of our salts in the their original packaging in your pantry or cupboard. Hope this helps! Best wishes, Kaitlin

Salts arrived well packaged. Purchased as a gift for a friend. It’s a great gift for anyone who loves to cook, no matter your level of expertise! Amazing how a little pinch or dusting of these exceptional salts brings out the flavors in your food.
The second I opened my box of salt goodies, I couldn't put down the cookbook. It's so luxurious to embrace and utilize salt with purpose, rather than just using sea salt for every single application. The onyx Hawaiian salt is so rich and buttery, and the set I bought is going to my son and his wife as their first "seasoned" wedding anniversary.
