The Spice Lab Gourmet Salt Collection No.1

My Mom would probably laugh that I am even doing this review. She knows that I lack a certain amount of passion in the kitchen. Cooking just is NOT my thing. I've never loved being in the kitchen, and I definitely do not see it as an art like some do. Lately though, having my very own little family, I am trying to find ways to make my cooking taste a little better, and I have been mixing it up some. This is the reason I contacted The Spice Lab

Even though I have started experimenting with my cooking more, the one area I lack in is seasoning. I never know exactly which seasoning to put in my dish, and I am terrified of ruining a hard cooked meal. The awesome thing about the Gourmet Salt Collection from The Spice Lab is that it comes with this nifty little "cheat" sheet. This sheet tells me which salts are a finishing salt, which salts are great to cook with and which are perfect to be use as a table salt. This card also tells me which salts are best on chicken, veggies, red meats, fish and soups or salads. They truly make this seasoning thing super easy. Even a novice "chef" like me can use these salts to their ultimate potential! 

This Gourmet Salt Collection includes 11 of the best tasting, hard-to-find salts in the world. These multi-pack samplers of salts are a great way to spice up your next meal, and are convenient to use and store. The collections are presented in affordable, portable, and decorative packages, perfect for kitchen countertops. They even comes with reference cards with detailed descriptions and suggestions on which salts go with which dishes, making it easy to create the perfect combination of flavors.

What we thought of this collection? Well first off, the set is simply stunning! The nice wooden block looks really fantastic sitting on my counter! I think it would make the perfect wedding present, and just in the right price range ($49.99) for a friend or coworker!  You might wonder if we can tell a difference in this salt rather than our traditional table salt. Yes, yes we can! Each of these salts offers a much more rich, delicious flavor to whatever we are cooking it in. My favorite is the applewood smoked!  Oh my, is this great!! I love to sprinkle this over red potatoes and drizzle a little olive oil over it, and pop it in the oven!! They are simply amazing, and totally packed with flavor using only those two ingredients! 

So, there you have it! I am definitely impressed by what I have tasted at The Spice Lab. I love that they are a family owned company, based out of my beautiful home state of Florida, so head on over and show their facebook page some love! This page will keep you up to date on what is the new happenings over at The Spice Lab!
