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.
I purchased both The Meadow and this set. I have been playing around with all the choices I now have at my disposal. Not a bad salt In the bunch!
