Salt When I started cooking, if someone told me that I would someday be paying more than 39 cents for a box of salt, I would have said they were nuts. Nowadays, you’ll find at least six types of salt on the counter where I cook, and at least a dozen more in my cupboard, collected from my travels. The first time I “got” what makes one salt better than another was when I was in the kitchen of my friend Susan Loomis, who lives in Normandy and teaches cooking classes. She had us taste a few delicate flakes of fleur de sel from the Guérande, then a few crystals of ordinary table salt, the stuff that sits in salt shakers on restaurant tables. My mouth was so overtaken by the taste of bitterness and chemicals in the table salt that it’s one of the few things I can no longer eat or use. Though I am overloaded with salt, normal people really only need to have two kinds of salt: one for cooking and another for seasoning. I use sea salt for cooking. In France, we have gray salt, which is mineral rich and comes in coarse or fine crystals. Although it’s not quite the same, kosher salt is good for cooking. I use finishing salt to sprinkle over salads, vegetables, and even chocolate (as a snack with a bit of olive oil). Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon from England, is very popular in France; it comes in boxes of irregular flat crystals. I use it, but not nearly as frequently as fleur de sel. This highly prized salt is harvested by hand, carefully skimmed off the surface of salt marshes when the tide is low. The best is fleur de sel de Guérande, harvested off the coast of the Atlantic when the weather conditions are just right. different countries have adopted the “fleur de sel” moniker, and you can find similar salts from Portugal, Spain, and in different places. It’s tough getting people to spend more than they are used to on salt. But I cook a lot, and my salt budget for the year is less than the price of a few cafés crèmes. I suggest that you get familiar with the kinds of salts that you have on hand and that you taste the food and salt it to your taste. When in doubt, add less salt than the recipe calls for—you can always add more later, but it’s hard to pick all those little crystals out once they’re mixed in. Shallots and Leeks The French use shallots frequently and every kitchen has a tiny filet (mesh bag) of shallots hanging someplace. Most French shallots are tiny; usually no larger than a prune. Shallots have a juicy sweetness and contribute a subtle onion flavor to foods without the harshness of onions so they can be used raw. A typical shallot weighs about ¾ ounce (20g)—so if you can only get larger shallots, use that as a guideline for the recipes in this book. Shallots should always be peeled, sliced, and finely minced, unless otherwise indicated. Leeks are the foundation of many classic French soups and stews. They are often sweated in butter and provide a fuller, more rounded flavor than onions. The most famous French leek dish is poireaux vinaigrette, which is a platter of steamed (or poached) leeks drenched in mustardy sauce.
