Diamond Crystal kosher salt is a world-renowned variety, famed for its texture, flavour and the way that the grains stick to food easily. Diamond Crystal kosher salt is a pure and natural variety with no additives. Chef Thomas Keller explains on The French Laundry cookbook “we use a specific brand of kosher salt, Diamond Crystal, because of the size of the grains.”
Keller goes on to say: “Salt is the primary seasoning ingredient we use. It heightens the flavour of everything across the board…without it, the flavour of meats and vegetables and fruit is a little flat, dead, fade, as they say in France – insipid. Salt opens up flavours, makes them sparkle.” So it makes sense to use the best variety available to give dishes the critical lift, which propels dishes to a restaurant-standard.
