Gregorie Marshall, Blackthorn’s Master Salter, whose family has been involved in the salt industry for five generations, sits down with me to explain the amazing process of how they make salt in their incredible Thorn Tower. Here we discuss how Gregorie turned his salty obsession into an incredible, sustainable artisan business and one that I love, the process behind making Blackthorn Salt, the history of salt and our favourite ways of using it to enhance flavours.
