A recent letter

I ordered a mystery box to share with my partner on our recent kinda vacation... I love how it was wrapped simply with brown paper and tied with twine...


Foundation Salt Set

A toolbox of natural sea salts for every kitchen!

The right salt used the right way reveals the full flavor potential of every food you eat. Our Foundation Set gives you the three salts at the heart of our shared culinary traditions, the essential foundation for salting every dish to perfection, whether you are a home cook or a professional chef.

This set includes three small jars of salt:

Bitterman's Fleur de Sel- Hand-harvested from solar-evaporated salt ponds by skimming just the finest crystals. Made in Guatemala from salt pans famed for supplying the Mayan Empire at the height of its power, the salt has delicate crystals, luscious moisture, satisfying crunch, and a rich, balanced mineral taste. Like any fleur de sel, it's generally the best salt for finishing delicate to medium-bodied foods ranging from Caprese salad, to cooked vegetables, eggs, and fish - even leaner meats like pork, game, and beef fillet.

Bitterman's Flake Salt - Water from the Mediterranean Sea is carefully crystallized in a greenhouse to form massive pyramidal flakes. Shards of these luminous white crystals deliver a counterpoint of sparkling pungency to salads, raw crunchy vegetables, poached and roasted fruit, hearty soups, and even chocolate chip cookies. Bitterman's Flake is the also the ultimate cocktail rimming salt for a Margarita or a Salty Dog.

Bitterman's Sel Gris - Our signature sel gris (French for "grey salt") with bold taste, high moisture content and nice mineral balance. This sea salt is ideal for finishing roasted and grilled meats and hearty root vegetables. It is great sprinkled on meats, hard cheeses, and crushed and mixed into pie crusts when baking. Use a generous handful to salt your pasta water!
