ABOUT THE WRITERS
Alison and David Lea-Wilson started Halen Môn, the Anglesey Sea Salt company, in 1997. They have always made a living from the sea — first as fishmongers, then aquarium owners — and been fascinated by the process of making sea salt. In 2017, Halen Môn won the Queen’s Award for Sustainability, and in 2019, Alison and David were awarded MBEs for their services to business. Their daughter, Jess, is a writer and designer who has worked in the food industry her whole working life.
One must never underestimate the power of salt: life, nourishment, and certainly flavour. Anyone, including chefs, can learn how to master the finesse of salt from this book.’
Daniel Boulud, chef and restaurateur
‘The best salt in the world comes from Wales… Internationally renowned chefs like Blue Hill’s Dan Barber use Halen Môn’s pure, flaky salt in their kitchens.’
