For the most natural way to season your food as it cooks, try salt block cooking – the ancient art of grilling, chilling, searing and serving on a salt block. Responsibly sourced from salt reserves in the Salt Range mountains of Pakistan, each chunky Salthouse Himalayan Rock Salt Cooking Block is unique, deriving its subtle variation in flavour and pinkish colour from the particular blend of minerals present in the salt seam it was carefully mined from.
How it Works
Long-lasting and naturally resilient to extremes of temperature, a Himalayan salt block only has to be held in your hands for you to appreciate just how heavy it is, and it’s this mass – combined with salt’s heat retention properties and the fact that it reacts differently depending on the moisture, fat, sugar, starch and protein content of different foods – that make it the perfect kitchen essential for imparting just the right amount of flavour to whatever is being cooked or cooled on or under it.
How to Use
There’s no end to the ways you can use it: from curing meat or fish to searing scallops or making salted caramel ice cream, the possibilities are endless and, because it lasts so long, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to experiment. Its low porosity means it doesn’t hold on to flavours so you can switch between sweet or savoury foods without compromising their taste – just a simple wipe of its surface once it’s back to room temperature and it’s ready to use again.
It comes with a lovely wooden gift box, ideal for storing the block between uses to extend its life, and care instructions.
A recipe book with 70 recipes for grilling, chilling, searing and serving on Himalayan salt blocks is also available – Salt Block Cooking Book
