“This salt is so indispensable, I bring a bag everywhere I go!” –Alice Waters

“Angelo Garro has been one of my most influential teachers, in the kitchen as well as in the fields and woods. As a rule I don’t do product endorsements, but my debt to Angelo is so deep, and his salt so special, that I have no choice. Rule Broken." – Michael Pollan

“Finally your salt is in the market and I do not need to steal from your kitchen any more.” – Werner Herzog

I am a blacksmith by trade and a cook, hunter and lover of food by passion. I have been making my Omnivore Salt for many years in my forge in San Francisco. My grandmother taught me the family recipe when I was a young boy in Sicily. She believed that the right mixture of spices with salt help enhance the natural flavor in food.

This salt blend works on everything - meat, vegetables and fish; just a pinch unlocks the deepest flavors of your food.

For years I have been providing many friends with this salt blend for use in their homes and restaurants. They have encouraged me to make it into a product that everyone who loves food can enjoy.

My dream is that you will love Omnivore Salt, and through your support, I will be able fund the first production run with a organically certified company. The money will go to help purchase some of the supplies I need as well as be able to work with an organically certified company to blend and package the Omnivore Salt.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

My goal: to keep the ingredients 100% organic and ensure that the quality of each bag is consistent. Note: there is no animal or animal bi-products in the salt.

My primary concern: keeping the organic ingredients in supply throughout the four seasons.

What I'm doing about it: I have several local sources lined up for each ingredient so that if one runs out, I will have a backup.

Challenges: If an ingredient is inaccessible, there could be a delay in the production and shipment.

How you will know: I will provide my backers with updates throughout the process.

How great is this risk: Minimal. I have decided to partner with a local organic production facility which requires a significant first product run. There will definitly be enough organic Omnivore Salt for everyone!
