Salt Starter Set

Size

A toolbox of finishing and cooking salts for every kitchen, every day!

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.

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 Diamond - Massive 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.

Net weight by volume:

  • Tins: .5-1oz each
  • Taster Cork Tops: 1.2oz each
  • Small Jars: 2oz each

Great Gift

My parents absolutely love salt and only buy gourmet salts. They were very excited to try all of these different salts. They talked about it so much it made me want to get my own salt starter kit!

A perfect gift!

My partner just started cooking, so I wanted to get him a variety of finishing salts to play with. The tins are the perfect amount to allow several experiments without overwhelming a newbie. Plus the set is beautiful!! And the salts are, of course, delicious.

Exceptional!

I ordered for my chef father and one for my husband but really for me :). We are thrilled with the quality and exceptional flavor and freshness of the salt!  A sprinkle at serving time makes all the difference between a good meal and a great one!
