Salt - The Number #1 Ingredient to Food.

There is no single ingredient that does more zest for food than salt. And, we are not just talking about changing French fries from bland to vibrant. We're talking about how salt adds flavor to the food. It reduces bitterness, for example; salt cuts the bitterness of coffee, but it also smooths out the “stale” taste of tank-stored water. It enhances sweetness, fooling taste buds and making the dish feel richer and more savory, for example; sweet butter contains salt so this can also fool the taste buds of feeling even more buttery. It is effective as a preservative because it reduces the water activity of foods. It helps bread rise, and it is the critical ingredient in ice cream. It is the juicy secret to seasoning beef, pork and fish. It is the culinary American obsession to caramel. And, to a surprise, it does all this without increasing calories.

If you watch any of the food shows from “Iron Chef” to “Beat Bobby Flay”, the responses from the judges that gave a thumbs down are always the same; “It could have used more flavoring, it could have used more SALT!” It is the main ingredient to Chefs, one that they cannot be without.

Overall, facts indicate that consumers prefer the intensifying flavor that only salt can provide. So, the next time you reach out for Salt, explore Jorge Salt & Co. Hand-Harvested Pure Sea Salt. The difference is hand-harvested intense pure sea salt natural flavor.

For the Love of Sea Salt.

 Jorge Salt - always by the sea.

Jorge Salt - always by the sea.

I have spent years learning about sea salt at my family’s coastal farm back in Spain, and all I know and love is in Jorge Salt & Co. Hand-Harvested Pure Sea Salt. Real sea Salt, hand-harvested from South Florida sea water, evaporated and carefully dried to coax out all the subtle sea salt flavors. I then taste and fine-tune the process for a delicious, pure crystal flake sea salt. I want people to experience the same amazing taste of sea salt that I do. - Jorge Salt

Eating Cuban

To “eat Cuban” is to savor a deliciously complex culinary culture. Spanish, Native American, African, Chinese, and French traditions have all contributed to Cuban cooking, producing a distinctive Caribbean cuisine as richly chorded as the island’s music. 

Beverly Cox and Martin Jacobs’s itinerary takes them from the barrio, paladars (private restaurants), and chic nightspots of Havana to the eateries of Florida’s emigré communities. From their journeys, they’ve gathered more than 120 recipes that comprehensively document Cuban cooking’s diversity, from the black bean soup found on any Cuban table, to the empanadas sold by Havana’s street vendors, to the grilled sandwiches that are a mainstay of Miami’s Calle Ocho, to the innovative dishes devised by chefs at top Cuban restaurants. 

Gorgeously illustrated with Jacobs’s photographs —many shot on the authors’ travels through Cuba—Eating Cuban highlights Cuban food’s historical roots, the classic Creole dishes that evolved from these disparate cultural influences, current trends in Cuban cooking, street foods and on-the-go snacks, and quintessential Cuban beverages from café Cubano to the mojito. A valuable resource list helps American cooks locate the required ingredients, and a restaurant directory points the way to the very best in Cuban cuisine—in Cuba and the U.S.
