Portable Maldon Sea Salt Flakes liven up picnics
If, like Nigella Lawson, you’re a fan of Maldon Sea Salt Flakes, you probably adore the British brand’s delicate, flat crystals and swear by them for finishing dishes.
While it might be a little fanatical to carry your own packet of salt in your bag for restaurant emergencies, it’s altogether reasonable to bring a small amount to sprinkle on a steak—or anything that needs some oomph—at a picnic or barbecue.
Tango’s Gourmet Meats (865 Denman Street) sells adorable metal tins of the salt ($1.98) that are about the size of a pack of mints. Just try not to act too pretentious when you pull one out.
