In this book he makes this simple truth abundantly clear with over 60 inspiring recipes such as: Colorado Beef Burger with Mesquite Smoked Salt, and Chilies, Truffle Salt Smashed Roasted Potatoes, Salted Latte Ice Cream with Lemon Espresso Drizzle.

The introduction explores why craft salt is different from iodized salt, kosher salt, and even industrially manufactured sea salt in regard to flavor, nutrition, and sustainability. The many varieties of gourmet salts available today are broken into 7 families (fleur de sel, sel gris, flake salt, traditional salt, shio, rock salt, smoked and infused salts), with helpful charts that make finding the right salt for the right food convenient and easy. The modern, but down-to-earth recipes are organized into practical chapters: Meat, Poultry, Seafood, Eggs and Dairy, Vegetables and Fruits, Sweets, and Drinks and Cocktails. Beyond the recipes, the tips, techniques, and suggestions will help you elevate your tried and true favorite dishes by now using the correct type of salt. Craft salts are not a fad, they are the heart and soul of our food culture today.
