Take it with a grain – or slab – of salt…

While looking for unique servingware recently, I purchased a Himalayan Sea Salt slab – it’s ethereal pink translucency and pure weight were slightly mezmerizing and drew me in initially. Little did I know the full benefits of my purchase – but quickly came to find out that not only was this a dramatic serving piece, but it was an amazing interactive show piece as well! These slabs–  ‘salt of the earth’, literally, can unassumingly be heated up to 500º at which point you can cook directly on their surface with some simple prepping. They can also be used over direct heat on a stove or grill AND cooled to feature cold foods, even ice cream. Sweet! Or in this case… Salty!
