Food has always been a big part of my life. Being born into a rather food-obsessed family, with a mother who took the time to cook everything from scratch, I was constantly surrounded by authentic home-cooked Korean Food as a child. More about Judy

@judyjoochef Instagram profile imageSalt farms in Thailand are a big business. Fresh sea water from the Gulf of Thailand is let in to flood a series of flatbeds. This mineral rich water is then allowed to evaporate under the heat of the sun forming large crystals. The salt is then collected, dried out further and cleaned. The salt is similar in structure to fleur de sel (more flower shaped than pyramids) and the taste is similar to other high quality sea salts.  I love trying salt from around the world and bringing back a little to use at home!
