Salt - Your favorite
- Roejimmy Feb 1, 2002 07:25 PM
While having a fantastic duck terrine recently (twice, in fact) at Sel de la Terre I found myself really digging the salt they used - so, Hounds, what is your favorite salt?
(I will find out from their chef what he used and post a follow up next week...)
re: just kev
Ala'e is the salt you are writing about. It is my favorite for flavoring steaks, poke', fatty meats, and some fish dishes. It has a sweet component to it so may not be the best for all dishes, a sushi chef friend of mine really had a hard time tryingto us the package I gave to him....
I use Hawaiian sea salt for many of my dishes, and kosher salt for the rest.
Even though I live in SD I am able to stock up on these items when back in the islands, or at specialty stores in CA.
