Jacobsen Salt Co. is excited to be apart of Colu Henry's pantry. We asked her a few questions about her book and her kitchen habits:
Jacobsen Salt: Off the top of your head, what is the easiest way to elevate a meal? For those nights after a long day, what is the easiest thing to do to make a simple dish, just that much better?
Colu Henry: Good food doesn't have to be complicated. Use high quality ingredients and prepare them simply. If you buy good quality oil and shop seasonally, you're already on your way to a good dinner. Having Jacobsen salt on hand doesn't hurt either.
Jacobsen Salt: Your book has multiple mentions of Jacobsen Salt Co. and a couple pictures with Jacobsen product. Why Jacobsen? What is it about Jacobsen Salt Co. that makes you choose them and their product- especially to include them in your book?
Colu Henry: I lived in Portland, Oregon for a spell and it's where I had Jacobsen Salt for the first time. I love the quality and concept of the product. I'm also a big believer in supporting small, local businesses. In short, it's just the best.
Jacobsen Salt: Do you think Jacobsen Salt Co. has a place in every kitchen? We have been told on numerous occasions that Jacobsen Salt Co. products are only used for special occasions, but we would love for our products to be an everyday product, in every kitchen.
Colu Henry: I certainly do! I finish my dishes with flaky salt. It provides great texture and seasoning. Also, I'm a big fan of the flavored salts. They provide an easy way to take every dish to the next level.
