- About Us
Infused Sea SaltsAn all-natural sea salt made with activated charcoal from the shells of coconuts and sea salt from the Pacific Ocean. With its jet-black grains you can use Hiwa Kai to finish off any dish that needs a bit of drama. Can replace your everyday table-salt or fill a grinder. Use as a finishing salt on seafood, grilled pork, roast chicken, or even on the rim of a cocktail—any place that the striking, jet-black color will stand out! Every kitchen needs this versatile artisanal 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.
