When Didi Davis acquired Salt Traders in 2008, she already had a prolific culinary career under her belt: she started training in 1972, opened her own cooking school in 1982, then quickly discovered a love of writing and moved on to penning cookbooks and developing recipes. When she returned to running her own cooking school in 2003, she constantly found herself hunting for fine, artisanal ingredients to use in lessons. On one trip to Paris, she discovered flavored salt and got to work blending her own. We're grateful that her (delicious) winding path eventually led her to helping us season our dishes better.
