Hi everyone,

Last week I was invited to a delicious breakfast put on by Tasman Sea Salt, hosted by Guy Turland from Bondi harvest.

Its interesting that in Australia when people talk about the quality sea salts they use, often Himalayan salts get a mention, however given the increasing trend to select locally sourced produce, it only makes sense to start looking a little closer to home when it comes to such a regularly used ingredient such as salt too!

Tasman Sea Salt is harvested from the nutrient rich waters of Great Oyster Bay on the east coast of Tasmania, providing salt rich in potassium with lower levels of sodium than many other salts.

Salt Sodium

(per 100g)

Potassium

(per 100g)

Tasman Sea Salt 32g 224mg
Murray River Salt 39.1g 12.8mg
Maldon Sea Salt 39g 聽80mg
Himalayan Pink Salt 38.2g 270mg

It actually has quite a strong deep flavour as a result of it retaining all the naturally occurring trace elements and minerals from the sea water; this means that less salt ends up needing to be used on your food in order to reap the flavour benefits = win:win.

Aside from nutrition and flavour, we were explained how the聽production process is exceptionally energy efficient, with them minimising the impact on the surrounding environment, and via the use of聽innovative technology, they are able to amplify the naturally occurring evaporation rates, creating an end product that is 100% natural with nothing added and nothing removed.

The dishes created on the day were so delicious that I thought I would source one of the recipes for you incase you wanted to recreate the deliciousness yourself at home!

Guy cured an egg yolk and then grated it over a baked cauliflower dish, and the end result was something almost reflective of a cheese like addition to the dish!

It was an extremely unique and tasty dish that I would highly recommend those of you who are enthusiastic chefs have a go of yourself 馃檪

Until next time,
