About The Spice Lab
A World of Salt
What can you do with a slab of salt that’s 250 million years old? Lots of incredible things, including cooking, grilling, chilling, and serving. Hand-cut slabs of pink, mineral-rich Himalayan salt have a beautifully marbled appearance that will turn heads at your next get-together. You can chill a brick in the freezer and use it to serve sushi, cold meats and cheeses, or fresh fruit and vegetables. Or, if you heat a salt brick to high temperatures in the oven or on a grill, you can sear seafood, meats, vegetables and other quick-cooking foods on it. It’s a functional cooktop and an artful
serving platter in one, while subtly infusing the flavors of natural, pure salt into your food.
The Spice Lab, founded by Brett Cramer, also offers Himalayan salt bowls (great for serving dips), a mortar and pestle for blending herbs and spices, and chalice-style tequila glasses made of solid pink salt. The salt bricks and vessels are harvested from the Himalayan mountain range in Pakistan. Carefully mined, it’s pure, high quality salt that requires no processing or purification.
Brett, who left an Internet career to pursue his passion for salts, also offers gourmet salt collections culled from The Spice Lab’s extensive selection of more than 175 salts. Sourced from around the world, these hard-to-find salts have unique characteristics, and Brett explains how to use each one and find the right variety to pair with different dishes.
