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...



Salt Starter Set + Craft Salt Cooking


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 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.

Starter Set

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.

Impressive set of salts

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.

Harold’s 67 birthday gift - from afar

For an old widower friend with no family. Had never thought of salt on buttered toast - now he’s hooked. Broadened his horizons with the tin of 3 salts and book. He is over the moon! PLUS the good people at The Meadow enclosed a lovely handwritten note on very nice paper. That was almost as good as the gift itself. Good stuff - grand people. Thank you. Brooks


great items!

Perfect gift

This was the perfect gift for my culinary minded friend. After he discussed his interest in how different salts affect the "tone" of a recipe, gifting him with the variety pack and accompanying cookbook on salt will give him ample opportunity to test this out. Plus I received the same salt pack from my daughter...
