- About Us
Infused Sea SaltsAlaea Hawaiian Sea Salt is the traditional salt used in Hawaii to season and preserve. It contains purified Alae clay which is high in minerals and gives the salt a mild taste. Try mixing the coarse salt with herbs and use as a spice rub; it seals in the natural moisture of meats. The fine grain can be used as a replacement for ordinary table salt.
Growing up in Montreal, antiques were always a part of my life. My mum and dad had a beautiful antique store and in it were many objects of interest including salt cellars. We always had salt on the table in pretty containers but they did not contain the more colorful and healthy salts that are becoming more prominent today. As the years went by, my interest evolved into the culinary field which led me to George Brown College in Toronto. I apprenticed in many restaurants learning the skills needed to create a great meal. I spent 5 years as the owner/operator of my own restaurant where I had a free hand to create and modify recipes. I proceeded to get my teaching degree and taught the culinary arts at the high school level for many years.
This brings us to the present day Salt Cellar. We operate as a small team and pride ourselves on being local and producing the blends in-house. We make our blends in small batches ensuring freshness. We started by selling at farmer's markets and then expanded into retail shops. We also sell in bulk to restaurants. We have been selling online for about 6 months.
