Salt Geek Society


2020 marks an exciting year for Cornish Sea Salt. To let you

into all of our plans would take many more pages, so instead

I’ll keep it focused on our key missions for next year:

The Salt Geek Society

I am often affectionately referred to as the Salt Geek in the office. A clever blend of

respect towards my knowledge for all things salty, mixed with the irony of the

pointlessness of such grey matter filler. At the end of the summer I was presented

with a t-shirt with Salt Geek emblazed on the front. Although sized to fit a previous

me, demand for the geek t-shirt and conversations that came with it were flowing. One

dinner party later, with our friends Imogen and Ivan at their restaurant Native, we

were convinced it was the start of a salty movement we had to continue. We’ll need to

come up with a funny handshake. It’s simple to join our Salt Geek Society, just flip to

the end of this edition and take the taste test.

Smoked Salt Expansion

After a number of the big retailers picked up on our Smoked Sea Salt we have been

working hard to increase the output from my homemade smoker made out of a

recycled crashed lorry. Each batch takes 3 days to smoke to fully allow the flavour and

colour to develop in the sea salt flakes. If you are a fan of fruit wood smoky flavours

please do seek it out. Sprinkle on butter melting over vegetables to give a smoky,

buttery richness.

Zero Waste

We have been supplying zero waste retailers with our sea salt for a number of years.

Silo’s new restaurant opened in London in late 2019 and was our first customer to

receive salt in 100% paper bags. The basis for Silo is a restaurant without a bin - such a

great idea and the experience of the food is so much better for it. In 2020 we will be

launching a new retail refill pack for the flakes. The bag will be 100% paper and so very

much compostable

Refill Station

Packaging wise we know that our sea salt tubs are a good option compared with glass,

especially if reused. This year we are launching our first mobile refill station, allowing

you to refill the tubs with our sea salt rather than left-over soup or basil plants. If you

are interested then its movements can be tracked on our social media.

Key Recipes/

Chicken Tray Bake

As a chef with a keen

interest in green-living,

I’m often asked how a

kitchen can become more

eco-friendly and waste

less, or offer people advice

about how they can cook

more sustainably. For me

the simplest answer is to

shop locally and buy produce in season, and

to always aim for zero waste when

preparing ingredients or cooking a recipe.

Great ways to do this include; using Cornish Sea Salt to

preserve the harvest; fermenting, pickling, or curing, plus

planning your meals carefully to avoid over-ordering on

ingredients. Also, a basic grasp of butchery means that you

can make the most out of more cuts of meat. I’m a proud

member of the Carcass Cartel, and myself and other chefs

in this nose-to-tail inspired group, love using Cornish Sea

Salt to enhance forgotten cuts of meat and show people

that you can avoid food waste.

In this edition of Seasoned I’m going to show you a

step-by-step for jointing a chicken - if mastered, this

simple skill means you can break down a whole bird into

more than one meal. You can use the carcass for stock, the

breast for skewers or the thigh for a tray bake. Even the skin

can be used as a tasty seasoning rather than wasted, by

making your own chicken salt. As we all know,

sustainability is also about eating more seasonal vegetables,

so we’ve come up with some innovative recipes for you to

enjoy this spring. Finally, the eco-ingredient of the year is

seaweed, so I’ve developed a few interesting recipes that

show you how to use seaweed in butter, hollandaise sauce

or even on sweet potato toast.

Nose to Tail

It’s easy to make

compromises on your

impact to the planet

through your every day

choices, from what you

wear, how you get from

A to B and what you eat.

At Cornish Sea Salt, we believe in ensuring zero waste

wherever we can, so here’s our meat-eater’s guide to

zero waste cooking: from Nose to Tail. If you’re looking

to reduce the amount of meat in your diet, there’s some

great vegan recipes to try your hand at too.

Serves: 4

Prep time: 30 minutes

/8 /9

Jointing a Bird

4. Use a pair of kitchen or poultry scissors to cut through

the breastbone completely.

5. Put the chicken on its side and from the point of the

breast, using a knife, cut out the ribs, following the fat

line around the wing. At the joint cut out the wing joint

using scissors.

6. Now the 4 pieces need to be divided again. Place the leg/

thigh pieces skin-side down on the board and use your

knife to cut through the joint, using the fat line covering

the joint as a guide. If the knife comes into contact with

the bone, move the knife a little to the left or right and

try again. It should cut cleanly through the joint. Repeat

with the second piece.

1. Place the chicken breast-side down on a chopping board

with the neck end away from you. Make a cut through

the skin, down the middle of the carcass, from the neck

end to just above the parson’s nose. Make a cut on either

side of the parson’s nose.

2. Identify the oysters, which lie on the carcass at the top

of the thigh. Make a cut across the top of the oysters to

release the sinew holding them in place and release the

oysters with your thumb.

3. Now turn the chicken so it is breast-side up with the

neck end away from you. Pull the skin over the breast to

ensure it is fully covered. Cut between the drumstick

and breast, keeping the knife close to the breast, but on

the outside of the carcass bone at the entrance to the

cavity, until the joint holding the thigh to the carcass is

exposed. Do the same on the other side. Place your

fingers under the thigh and your thumb on top of it then

push up with your fingers to ‘pop’ the thigh joint. Repeat

on the other side.

Top Tip:/

Trim off any excess fat

from the carcass and use

to make stock.

7. To divide the breast pieces cut through the meat with

your knife, then through the bone with a pair of scissors

to leave a diamond-shaped tapering piece of breast and a

smaller, but thicker, piece with the wing attached. Trim

off the end wing pinion. The chicken should now have

been jointed into 8 pieces.

/14 to make a change?


I worked in Melbourne with Dutch-born artist Joost

Bakker who was commissioned by Sydney and

Melbourne city council to build a pop-up restaurant

from waste material. It was a case of right place at the

right time – I loved the concept and the team of people

that worked there. Soon after we developed our first

café Silo Melbourne.

We’ve got one exception of glass recycling, but this is

only temporary as we are in the process of installing a

glass crusher upstairs in the warehouse. Once this is

running, we can crush and melt glass to make anything

we want from it to give a new purpose: light fixtures,

glasses, plates.

Meet Douglas McMaster

What’s been your best zero waste culinary


I have an adventurous palate, so it’s a bit of an unusual

combination of sea buckthorn, a wild orange British

berry with a passionfruit flavour and Douglas Fir. I use

the pine needles to make an amazing green oil and then

make a jelly from the sea buckthorn. It’s a totally new

territory of flavour, really unique and special. Great

with homemade crème fraiche.

You’ve just opened up your second zero waste

restaurant in London, how’s it going?

We received a 9/10 review from the Telegraph on our

third day of being open which was pretty special.

We’ve had incredible support since we opened from

locals too.

We’ve loved working with you to explore

different ways of getting Cornish Sea Salt to

you in a more sustainable way. We sent your last

delivery in a hessian sack – how have the initial

trials run?

Beautiful. It’s an amazing sea salt, salt is the foundation

of food flavour and a fundamental ingredient. To have

such a beautiful, simple, natural supply chain with so

much care is how it needs to be.

Why do you choose to use Cornish Sea Salt?

You’ve got the flexibility to want to work in a different

way. Food industries have routines and don’t want to

change but Philip believed in what Silo stood for and

changed for me as he believes in what we’re trying to

do and that is something really special.

Douglas McMaster, with his pioneering zero waste restaurant, Silo, is one of

our favourite Salt Heroes of 2020. Opening the first restaurant of it’s kind in

an East London warehouse at the end of last year, his story and passion for a

better future is truly inspiring. Find out more about zero waste and how we

are working together with Silo to change the face of the food industry.

What are your top tips to somebody looking to

make positive changes towards a zero waste


There is no authority here, zero waste really is a thing

born in the last decade. Few people know exactly what

it is. The name suggests zero, but this doesn’t currently

exist, it’s a movement, an aspiration. A nice first step is

to try to achieve zero food waste by composting and

sending all recycling to landfill. Top tier is literally not

having a bin, sending nothing to landfill and having no

food waste, and that’s where Silo are.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you

came to be a part of Cornish Sea Salt

I was lucky to be involved at the inauguration of Cornish

Sea Salt in a rather unusual way. I ran an events company

for many years in Falmouth and was asked by the late

founder of Cornish Sea Salt, Tony Fraser, to assist with

some of the very early events. My company was tasked

with providing the stage lighting for the original Cornish

Sea Salt Crystals. They were shown to prospective buyers

and chefs in a very large blue bowl and the colours

depicted the lovely sea water around the Lizard Peninsula.

food marquees started appearing at the one-day shows so

that created another popular area to take the product.

Currently I cover as many as possible of the big shows in

the West Country such as Royal Cornwall Show,

Dartmouth Food Festival, St Ives Food Festival,

Porthleven Food Festival and all Made in Cornwall events

on Lemon Quay in Truro. In between these larger events I

can be found at Truro Farmers Market, Padstow Farmers

Market, Torpoint Street Market and the Royal William

Yard Good Food Sundays in Plymouth.


Where can people find you around Cornwall to buy

Cornish Sea Salt?

Over the years I have attended lots of different events to

promote Cornish Sea Salt in various formats and flavours

to as many events as possible. Some of my earliest shows

nearly 10 years ago were at the NEC in Birmingham with

the television chef James Martin and many visits to River

Cottage in Axminster for Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

They were nerve-racking as I was still learning the ropes!

Tell us more about the refill station you’re

launching this year?

I am delighted to be the first refill station for Cornish Sea

Salt Crystals and Flakes which is being planned for early

2020. Many of my regular customers have expressed a

wish for this service. The idea being that they can bring

their own container to me for a refill for as much as they

would like. I feel if we all do our bit we can help the


What’s your favourite show to attend and why?

Some of the shows such as Dartmouth Food Festival and

the Royal Cornwall Show are events I like to attend as

there is so much buzz around them. I now have a lot of

people who ask where I am going to be so they can visit a

different food show or market. It’s quite funny when I am

out of Cornwall the number of people who want to holiday

in our area and ask for the best places to visit!



This year, we are finding new ways

to help to reduce our impact on the

environment. We’ll be producing

the first ever Cornish Sea Salt refill

station that will be taken around

to all our local and national shows

with Graham so you can refill your

reusable pots of Cornish Sea Salt

Crystals and Flakes. We’re also

pioneering a brand new form of

packaging with compostable refill

eco-pouches for our flakes range.

We aim to make seaweed

available to everyone and try

to make it an integral part of

people’s diet.


Meet the Seaweeders

How did The Cornish Seaweed

Company begin?

We started off drying seaweed in our caravans in 2012, after

learning how to harvest seaweed from a small seaweed

company in Donegal, Ireland. Without any funds available it

was tough getting it off the ground and we struggled for the

first few years. But we were able to ride the wave of (inter)

national seaweed publicity that soon followed and grew to

become the leading English seaweed company. We now

provide jobs for 11 people and set up the first commercially

operating UK seaweed farm in 2018. Our products can be

found in food stores nationwide, and we have recently started

exporting to the EU, while chefs such as Nathan Outlaw,

Jamie Oliver, Raymond Blanc and Hugh Fearnley-

Whittingstall are all customers.

We also cultivate seaweed on ropes in the sea. This is done in

a mussel farm off the coast of the Lizard as well. Here we have

seaweed hanging off lines suspended in the ocean. The cool

thing about this technique is that it forms an artificial reef,

providing habitat for a lot of species, including commercial


What’s your favourite product from

your range?

Hard to say as they are all great and have so many varied uses,

but if I have to choose, possibly dried dulse or sea salad flakes.

Both are very versatile, I even put them in my porridge in the

morning. It provides a great health boost supplying a wide

range of minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants in high


What do you love most about Cornwall?

The ocean and the coast of course! It offers so much. Surfing, snorkelling,

sailing, peacefulness, energy, jobs, beauty, food, and it’s just awe-inspiring.

But we have to make sure we manage it carefully and not overexploit or

pollute it. So many people love the ocean, but we need to preserve the

beauty we love and that means making some changes. It seems we are

moving that way though.

What’s next for The Cornish Seaweed

Compan y

Seaweed is probably the most sustainable crop in the world as it does not

need fresh water, pesticides, fertiliser, or cutting down natural habitats to

grow it. Also, it is a local abundant food with the highest nutritional values

and health benefits in the world!

We aim to make seaweed available to everyone and try to make it an

integral part of people’s diet. We want seaweed’s environmental and

health benefits to be recognised and strive to grow the business

sustainably, looking at alternative uses for seaweed, including fertiliser,

biofuel, bioplastic, medicine, clothes, you name it!

Where do you harvest seaweed?

We forage seaweed off the coast of the Lizard Peninsula. We

make sure that we do this sustainably, as the environment is

our main concern. To this end, we only harvest part of the

different plants, basically giving them a haircut or pruning

them, to allow regrowth. We take our small boat to the

harvest site, then either free dive or harvest from the rocks

around spring low tides using nothing but buckets and

scissors. Seaweed can grow so fast, we recorded regrowth

rates of up to 140% in 4 weeks! We rotate the area and species

we harvest every time to allow the plants to grow back.

What’s your favourite recipe to use

Cornish seaweed in?

A good vegan Indian curry. Make the curry as usual, and add

strips of dried dulse in just before serving. The dulse gives off

an amazing salty, meaty taste and texture, and soaks up the

flavour of the curry. Or a vegan lasagne, where some of the

lasagne sheets are substituted for kelp.

1 tsp Seaweed Salt

1 tsp lemon zest


Remove your pat of butter from the fridge, so that it starts to soften at room

temperature. Mix it in a large bowl with a wooden spoon or electric beater until

lighter and easier to shape. Sprinkle in your Seaweed Salt, chopped herbs and

lemon zest then mix until you have an even distribution. Slightly wet your hands

and roll the butter on a large sheet of baking parchment into a roll 5cm across.

Once you have an even cylindrical shaped seaweed butter, seal the ends with a

twist and return to the fridge or freezer to set.

Use this flavoured butter with bread for the ultimate fish finger butty, grilled

white fish or as a base for white wine sauce for cooking seafood or chicken.
