I bought this book as a gift along with a salt grinder. Serendipitously, my own salt grinder broke and I decided to keep it for myself, along with the book and find another gift instead. This book is lovely. It is short, but sweet and I made five of the recipes for just one dinner party that was a huge success! My favorite so far is the black Hawaiian salted breadsticks, yum! Most of the recipes are fairly straightforward, nothing too challenging, but they have the fun twist of using so many different types of salt and really coming from different regions and culinary traditions. I am also a big fan of photos and this book does not disappoint!

If you love to cook, and love salt just as much, then this book is made for you. The pictures are lovely and the recipes are amazing - focusing on salt, but also other salty treasures like olives. A must-have for the salt connoisseur in your life.

This is not a very big cookbook, but some really nice recipes! We already made the peach caprese salad and it was excellent! Served it at a dinner party for 8 and there were no scpraps left. I did substitute the honey with a blood orange olive oil and it really gave a nice flavor.

I have been very interested in salt of late and this cookbook provides both a pleasing presentation with great photos and nice recipes. There is not a lot to this cookbook so if you are looking for the "Complete" works of salt cookbooks there are others. But if your interest is general and you are looking for ideas to give you a head start. This is a good one.

Nice pictures and a small reader, but you'd think someone is proofreading and double checking these books.

We followed the pretzel recipe in this book at a family weekend get-together, but this recipe says to use 'baking powder'. This is a totally incorrect, as baking powder does nothing to the change color of the pretzel exterior. It should say 'baking soda', (which I later confirmed through various other recipes) to provide that dark color. So we waited for the pretzels to get that dark exterior coat, and even turned the oven on a higher temperature [475f] to achieve the dark exterior. But it barely became dark and then the pretzels, although edible, were clearly over cooked, not soft & chewy.

Nice history on the various salts and some nice recipes. This pairs well with a sea salt sampler, that way you are a better informed cook.

I purchased this book as a gift with a collection of salt and another book, Salt A World History. The cover drew me right in, and I copied off several of the recipes before I gifted it, with the actual cookies from the book. The photography is excellent, and the recipes simple and delicious. The only drawback is that there wasn't more recipes!
