16 Oct Ever did a salt tasting online?
The company Atlántida Medio Ambiente, from Cádiz has offered several online salt tastings, within the framework of the Salinas y Empleo Sostenible III programme, funded by the Fundación Biodiversidad in Spain. Participants were able to sample and compare artisanal salts from Andalusia and the Canaries, with well-known gourmet salts from France, USA and Pakistan. The participants received the samples at home and could exchange impressions. The tastings were led by Amanda Rivillas, who commented the organoleptic and physical-chemical properties of the salts and highlighted the importance of protecting the natural and cultural values of local saltscapes and food sovereignity. From our own experience, these salts matched especially well with homegrown tomatoes!
