Following on from Pete Kirk’s recipe we continue with our theme SALT ‘n SEASONINGS – why? Because our wonderful partner-in-salt lifestyle chef Izelle Hoffman came to us with a fab idea of creating a series of customised sizzling season mixes based on Oryx Desert Salt especially for us!

These recipes use small quantities so once it’s mixed up you’ll have enough to fill a 100g bottle with a little bit extra.

Some more fun with our Black & White theme continues! Our friends at Sense of Taste have come up with this fabulous creation making Hake Roulades using Oryx Desert Salt. Not only does it look sensational, but the taste combinations are incredible! Try it out for yourself!
We love bagels with Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese and Capers. But there are so many sumptuous fillings… like Camembert Cheese, Parma Ham and Caramelised Onions….or Peppered Pastrami and Gherkin Relish! Bagels are different and not your everyday bread roll, so a nice treat to have with a decadent filling of your choice. And bagels are so easy to make!
