January of 2012, we opened LENOIR, our small family restaurant in Austin, TX. We’ve always described the food as a combination of Texas farm to plate meets hot weather cuisine, which means we pair Texas ingredients with spice & heat and keep it light and vibrant. We keep a well-stocked pantry of fun items we like to make, like barrel-aged honey, hot sauces, vinegars and our salt blends. Friends and loyal customers occasionally asked to purchase our finishing salt, so when we opened Métier Cook’s Supply in 2014, a small kitchen supply shop next to the restaurant, we began to jar it up and sell it to the public. It has quickly become a customer favorite and our number one seller!
The LENOIR Finishing Salt is the complete embodiment of our food at the restaurant. It’s combines large flake sea salt, dried Texas herbs and their flowers, spices and chilies. The result is an unmistakable flavor and scent that is addictive. It’s true that once you begin using it, going without makes all food seem bland by comparison. We love it on everything from eggs to steaks, vegetables to popcorn. Add a pinch to any sandwich and you’ll never go back.
The LENOIR Ramen Salt is the newest addition to our pantry. It’s a finer blend of sea salt, smoked tomato, dried mushroom, herbs and spices that allow you to play with the flavor of umami in everything. It’s great as a rub, a seasoning for aïoli, labneh or yogurt and perfect sprinkled on french fries or roasted chickpeas. As it says on the jar, it’s not just for noodles!
