This is going to sound weird but I actually thought long and hard about posting this because I mean, it's the first post of the year and you kinda want it to be special. This isn't special, it's just salt. Having said that, this is indeed a special type of salt because it comes from Cervia, a seaside resort town in Emilia Romagna, on the East Coast of Italy, famous for its natural salt flats. Their cuisine revolves around the use of salt. I'm just going to have a light meal today and I've decided to use this salt and olive oil as the only condiments. It is natural sea salt, it's actually a bit sweet, and as you can see from the pictures it isn't refined, the salt grains are big and thick.
