The Fava Bean Puree is one of our favorites not only for its delicious flavor, but for its amazing health benefits. Fava beans are high in folate, iron and dietary fiber. So break out those snap peas and other amazing spring time vegetables and start dipping! 

SALT's Tiramisu

The name Tiramisu, is of Italian origin and translates to "lift me up" or "pick me up". Traditionally the ladyfinger cookies are soaked in coffee and a mousse consisting of mascarpone folded with an Italian meringue. The use of amaretti cookie is a classic end to an Italian meal, especially in Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, and Piemonte. It's old school meets a modernist approach. This tiramisu a great way to end a perfect meal at SALT, or in your own back yard.
