Do you know the history of salt? Interesting commodity.
Salt plays a vital role in food & our health.
Meet Samin Nosrat. It all started when a friend told me about her Netflix 4 part series:
Salt Fat Acid Heat. Watched them all, loved her personality, where she traveled to dive deep into each element, & the cooking. The chemistry of cooking is very important.
That is what she explains in detail in her own style.
I'm guessing if you like to cook & look up stuff on the web at all
you have heard of her, the series, & the book of the same name.
My older son who loves to cook was also taken with her. I got this fancy embossed
version of the book for Christmas from him!
Notice the mention of Wendy MacNaughton as the artist.
More on her on "W" day.
I use this salt almost exclusively, for everything. Samin's advice is
if you have the iodized old style version we all grew up with, throw it out.
This salt & it's cousins from the same company are nice for sprinkling on appetizers, desserts, more special things, or just your hard boiled egg in the morning. We all deserve something special.
