Praise for SALT:

 

"The most comprehensive book that's been written on the world's most important ingredient. Leslie Bilderback breaks down all cultural and culinary barriers to explore every aspect of salt and its universal applications in both savory and sweet."

SALT

The Essential Guide to Cooking with the Most Important Ingredient in Your Kitchen

 

By bestselling author

Leslie Bilderback

 

 

________________________________________________________________________

 

Back to basics has never been so divine. Join bestselling author and master baker Leslie Bilderback on an exploration of a common ingredient that you will never see the same way again in SALT: The Essential Guide to Cooking with the Most Important Ingredient in Your Kitchen (St. Martin’s Press; September 6, 2016; $24.99).

 

Salt has been an essential dining element since the invention of the kitchen table. Today, specialty salts come in a vast variety of forms and flavors. Smoky salts; salts infused with clay or charcoal; herbacious and spicy salts; salt with extra umami or a hint of sugar; these all make appearances in many recipes, some even as the star of the dish. Salts are being used to layer more complex flavors, not to simply enhance the flavors already present. It’s a feast for the tongue, and colorful salts can add to the visual appeal of dishes, while the varying textures add interest for the palate.

 

But how do you decide which to buy—and how do you get the most out of them once you’ve brought them back home to your kitchen? SALT will show you how to choose and use them in simple, delicious recipes for every meal of the day. You will learn how to cook, cure, and bake with them. Plus, you’ll find a market guide that describes the different types of specialty and infused salts, discover ways to cook with salt blocks, and even how to organize your own salt tasting at home! More than 100 mouthwatering recipes—plus  descriptions of nearly 50 varieties of infused salts—with beautiful, full-color photography, will help you transform this classic, humble ingredient into a star seasoning.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

LESLIE BILDERBACK is a chef, certified master baker, and a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. She began her career as a pastry chef, and played a major role in several of California’s most well-regarded and innovative restaurants, including Sedona, Postrio, Zola’s, Angeli, and Georgia. She is also the author of Mug CakesMug MealsNo-Churn Ice Cream, and The Spiralized Kitchen.
