Salt Tasting With Chef Kathy Gunst09:40

Play

Fancy salts are popping up in gourmet stores across the country. Here & Now Resident Chef Kathy Gunst brings a sampling of gourmet salts for Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson to try.

Gunst says these are not salts to use in cooking, but rather as a last minute addition.

"What's great is that it gives you control over your seasoning. The idea behind a lot of these is that you make salt a deliberate act, as opposed to just throwing tons of it in and then afterwards being like 'oh, woops...too much.'"
