When people say "craftsman," they usually think of artisans who work with materials like wood or metal but in Japan, a chef is most certainly considered a shokunin (artisan) and the same goes for other people working in the world of food, from butchers to sake master brewers and, yes, even people who make salt! Yuzen Inoue, the man behind the Za You Zen Four Seasons Salt Winter Snow, is one such craftsperson, a "salt master" who has been perfecting his art for decades!
Using salt from Yuya Bay, a small bay in Yamaguchi Prefecture on the shores of the Sea of Japan, and a unique technique that balances the minerals in the salt, Inoue-sensei's Za You Zen Four Seasons Salt Winter Snow is a unique and subtle condiment or seasoning that brings out the flavor and umami inherent in your food. The master himself says that the pure, snow-like salt in this 140 g (4.9 oz) bag is excellent for pork recipes, but that's just the beginning of what you can do!
