Sustainable Sourcing Releases Himalayan Salt Serving Ware

Great Barrington, MA, May 28, 2011 --( Himalayan pink salt has come into a new era in the food industry as Sustainable Sourcing brings their HimalaSalt™ line into a new realm with the introduction of their Himalayan Salt Serving Ware collection, which includes Himalayan Salt Plates, Slabs, Cups and Bowls.

Sustainable Sourcing has long been bringing consumers their high-quality Himalayan pink salt, HimalaSalt™. The new serving ware has already received high levels of recognition from gourmet chefs, and is ready to be enjoyed for home entertaining as well. Melissa Kushi, founder and president of Sustainable Sourcing, has a long-standing mission of providing consumers with creative ways to reap the benefits of Himalayan salt.

“Leading chefs have already discovered the unique and wonderful ways in which to use our Himalayan Salt Plates,” states Kushi. “I am so proud to be able to share these items with my customers. I’m having a window frame custom fitted with them!”

The Serving Ware is artisan-crafted from ethically sources primordial ocean deposits. The line consists of Himalayan salt cooking slabs, plates, bowls, cups and tapas plates. The Himalayan Salt Serving Ware is made of super premium grade Himalayan salt and can be used for cooking, serving and entertaining. The plates can be used at room temperature for cheese, fruits, or tapas. When chilled in the freezer they are ideal for serving meats, fish and sushi. The cooking slabs can be heated for tabletop cooking of thinly sliced meats, seafood, vegetables and kabobs. Chilled Himalayan salt bowls hold salads, fresh vegetables, fruits and cheeses.

When heated, the bowls can be used at the table for chocolate fondue or any dessert calling for a sprinkling of high-quality salt. Himalayan salt cups come in a set of four and can be chilled for sorbet, shrimp cocktail, olives and cocktails. They also make elegant serving ware for slender pieces of tempura, bread sticks, cheese or filled with fine grain HimalaSalt. The cups glow like illuminated rose quartz when a candle is added. Each item comes with cooking and care instructions.

All of Sustainable Sourcing’s products are produced in their own certified organic, Kosher Passover certified processing facility in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of New England.
