    How about smoked salts? Do they taste like anything? I have been eating these expensive little tomatoes at home lately and they need a little salt to dip them in - at restaurants here they have a dirtier looking fine grind salt that tastes great with stuff like this, but I don't know what it is or where it's from, but it's likely something local and processed in a specific traditional way. Guerande grey or Maldon, which I have at home, just don't taste as nice it seems.

    Smoked salts have a unique taste. I like both smoked salt and smoked pepper, the later more

    Smoked salts are different because they've been smoked. Personally I'd like to add smoke more directly, because then you can salt independently and then control the level of salt and smoke separately. You relinquish control using a product like that, but I mean, eat whatever makes you happy. I'm sure I'd like it.

    Although I'm on the verge of the verge of sounding like a fan-boy, it's pretty cool we have a resident cooking expert in foodguy.. I was looking trough a cookbook today that referenced Russ Parsons's technique in a recipe and I couldn't help being exited thinking that I "talk" to him on a fairly regular basis online. Pretty damn cool.

    speaking of salt I just picked this up the other day on a whim. It's Himalayan salt...supposedly super pure and over 250 million years old. Has anyone tried this (I haven't even opened it yet). Or is this just some marketing bullshit?

    had some of that. It doesn't taste much different than any other salt. It's pretty, though.

    You're such a fanboi!


    Seriously, love having you around here.

    We have a light carved out of that Himalayan salt. Seriously college weed smoking-esque thing.
