Shino Takeda Salt + Pepper Dishes and 10 Beautifully Packaged Salts

by Grace Bonney

Despite my best efforts, I am constantly dehydrated. I’ve never been good at drinking enough water during the day and I am constantly adding salt to everything I eat and cook. I know it’s wrong, but the relationship between me and salt is one that’s long lasting and dedicated. While I’m making an effort to cut back on the quantity of salt I use, I’m still collecting salts like no one’s business. And what better way to display them than in these beautiful salt + pepper dishes from Shino Takeda ($32 each). Each one is a tiny work of art and makes me feel a little better about always having salt out on the table. And speaking of salt, here are 10 beautifully-packaged (and great tasting) salts you can add to your collection, too… xo, grace

Suggested For You


  • Grace you must try to find Murray River salt from Australia. Lovely pale pink flakes, and the flavour is like no other!

  • just a single note… fleur de sel should be dry? look at the package in cork (natural, bio, environment friend) used for milenius, and the nature of salt remains like the moment it is packed.
