Let There Be Salt

Let’s imagine for a moment, a world without salt. Tables with only pepper shakers, bland potato fries and tasteless chicken curry. History books would not have a fascinating Salt March story to tell, and we’d be chugging down beer with sweet chips. What would the judges of Masterchef have to yell at the contestants about?

It’s one of those things we take for granted. You know, something that only crosses our minds when it’s absent. From the fairy tale of the princess who loved her father as much as salt, to its use to drive away the evil eye, salt is deeply ingrained in our social and cultural lives.

So when a restaurant comes along and tells you they cook with salt, your first natural reaction is probably – “doesn’t everyone?”

No Ordinary Salt

But this is no ordinary salt you see. This is salt from the mighty Himalayas, from the depths of the English seas, and the subtle flavoured seaweeds of France. The food at this restaurant is fused with delicate salts from Mexico, Japan, Spain, Morocco, Thailand and India. Who knew that you could choose the kind of salt you wanted your food to be sprinkled with?

When the chefs at Radisson Blu GRT were sitting around at lunch, talking about all things food, they realised they needed to bring the incredible experience of choosing and tasting salts to the city’s foodies.
