Great advice! Thanks Iron Chef. I can't believe I didn't think of tomatoes and olive oil with the salt. I do that all the time as it is one of my favorite snacks. This salt will make it that much better. Brilliant idea!

I was about to suggest the same thing that ironchef just did (great minds!) but the with addition of some fresh mozzarella and fresh basil from your garden.

I love using different salts...and any fine food you are preparing will benefit from the fine ingredients you are using. FLeur de sel is awesome and I agree, slice before seasoning so the salt has full benefit.

Have you ever tried smoked salts?

I tried smoking ice cream once but the paper got all wet and wouldn't light.

I am so jealous. But jealous because I was lazy on Saturday and didn;t get to Penzey's like I had planned. I wish they were open at night or on weekends


I am a real stickler about seasoning meat before I cook it (Shirley C.; "What Einstein Told His Cook;" Alton Brown, etc.). Salting meat after you cook it doesn't properly season. So I probably would not use it that way. Although I might be persuaded to season first lightly and then finigh lightly.

My favorite way to use finishing salt is on salad.

And, as ironchef suggests, on garden tomatoes.
