Very excited to see these arrived while we were in New York. We are huge fans of Netarts Bay, Oregon based Jacobsen Salt Co. at Watson Kennedy. Their flake finishing salt has become a classic. Now, with the addition of this pure Kosher sea salt, they will now take up 2 spots on our kitchen shelves. Hand-harvested from the cold waters off the Oregon Coast. Sure to become a staple. Using the best salt possible really does bring out the most in your cooking. And you know this packaging just made me swoon. Cool enough to leave out on open shelving. They always just get it right, inside and out.
Just in time for Easter week-end festivities, comes this perfectly packaged Bloody Mary salt. Whether a pinch is added to the cocktail or rimmed on the glass, this is just all good stuff–sea salt, heritage bacon, sundried tomato, serrano pepper, celery seed. Created by the AMOLA company on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC. Again, one of my favorite combos of what is on the outside of the box is as good as what is inside. Stellar, stellar packaging to add to a grown-up Easter basket, bring as a host/hostess gift, or just keep for yourself.
Food books can make such great gifts. The above 2, ‘Salted’ and ‘Pepper’ delve deep into the history of both, while also being cool enough to leave out on the coffee table. Filled with recipes, they are also interesting cookbooks. The duo wrapped together makes for a quite special combo gift. We had a customer the other day buy the ‘Pepper’ book and we tied off a small pepper grinder to the package, which made for a festive, clever, and oh so useful gift.
