Foodies and Localvores, Flake Salt from Oregon!
For those obsessed with the excellence of their food supply and quality of life:
I am an unabashed mad foodie. In reality, who isn’t? I am captivated by excellent food, with an especial interest in the hardworking, dedicated people who harvest and create wonderful ingredients that we can use at home and not just experience in crazy expensive restaurants.
On the Oregon Coast, Ben Jacobsen and his team at Jacobsen Salt Co. produce salt from the seawater at Netarts Bay. The company produces different types of salt like flaky salt, pure kosher salt, and more for consumers and restaurants around the country. Have a gander at this wonderful mini-documentary describing their work and highlighting their team:
Spoiler alert: There is a woman in “post production” which I’ve only ever heard of before in the movie business who hand selects all their “finishing salts,” examining the production flow for gorgeous crystals like this one.
Eat well! In this case, season well!
