Maldon the Salt of Life
What is the one item chefs and food lovers worldwide would
be lost without? Salt, of course! No other single condiment enhances the natural flavors of foods like a touch of high quality finishing salt. Did you know that salt is an essential element in the diet of humans, animals, and even many plants?
Throughout history, salt has been such a vital component of life for civilizations around the world that it’s been featured in countless stories, fables, and fairy tales. Salt encompasses much of the history of Europe since Roman times. In the UK, particularly in Essex, salt reigns supreme. Charles Dickens penned a Victorian era Ghost Story “To be taken with a grain of Salt.” Decades later, George Gissing wrote “The Salt of the Earth,” a phrase long used to describe a person of solid character. Indeed, it’s difficult to imagine our daily experience without this cultural staple, especially when it comes to the meals that enrich our lives. As with many of life’s finest gifts, however, quality is often more important than quantity. Maldon Sea Salt beautifully illustrates this point. This 130-year old,
family owned company is the #1 sea salt in the UK with good reason. Chefs and foodies in over 50 countries have helped make Maldon Sea Salt a world renowned brand because they simply won’t do without it. Why is this unique finishing salt such a time honored treasure? That’s partly due to its purity, which lends a rich, mellow flavor and remarkable delicacy. Free from the bitter after-taste often associated with lesser quality salt, its characteristic clean, fresh taste enhances the flavor of all natural and fine foods. You will also notice a distinctive texture, soft enough to gently grind in your fingers, attributed in part to the lack of artificial additives. The characteristic pyramid shaped crystals of Maldon Salt are unique, recognized internationally as the world’s finest. For 130 years, the distinctive shape of Maldon Salt’s pyramid crystals has been a company trademark, celebrating the fine quality of their soft, crunchy flakes. This culinary gem is regularly featured in national cooking magazines such as Bon Appétit, Cooking Magazine, and Martha Stewart Living, on cooking shows such as The Iron Chef and recommended by chefs such as Nigel Slater, Jamie Oliver, Emeril Lagasse, and Delia Smith. Maldon smoked sea salt is equally worthy of merit, robustly enhancing the natural flavors of meat, fish and poultry. Using traditional smoking methods to gently “cold smoke” the salt crystals ensures a rich, distinctive ‘salty’ taste, combined with a deliciously subtle smoky nuance that adds sophistication to your favorite dishes. You’ll find it a versatile culinary ally for shellfish, meats, sauces, salsas, soups and marinades. The people of Maldon have been bringing recipes to life and balancing flavor since 1882, and will continue to do so for generations to come. Culinary luxury or daily necessity? Unquestionably both. We are indeed worth our salt! Visit www.maldonsalt.com
