The best cooks have a natural talent for working with food. There are nuances in cooking they understand almost instinctively, while the rest of us simply don’t pick them up. Sometimes even seasoning a dish is a challenge if you don’t really know your way around the kitchen!

For those of us who haven’t attended Le Cordon Bleu, the distinction between table and kosher salt may seem unimportant. As it turns out, though, there are real differences between the two that can have a huge effect on the way we cook!

Most people know that there are two commonly used types of salt: table and kosher salt. However, many of us incorrectly assume that when it comes to cooking, they can be used interchangeably.


There are actually significant differences between the crystals of table and kosher salt themselves, and this can have a huge impact on the way each tastes and, more importantly, the way each is measured.


If you only use salt to flavor your dishes when you cook, you may not run into any problems right away. However, if you’re using a recipe that calls for precise measurements of salt it’s important to know the difference.


Discover the differences between table salt and kosher salt and the best ways to use each in your cooking below!

Wow, this is a really easy way to improve a lot of dishes!
