Essential. Enigmatic material, salt is indispensable on the table, so common that we forget it except when the superstition requires not to pass it from hand to hand or to throw a pinch of it behind our shoulders when pouring. Apotropaic gestures, which basically tell us how mysterious salt is. So why not add to these ancient rituals a more current, cheerful one: grate the salt! A gastronomic exercise but also manual, visual and olfactory. Rivsalt is a new way of giving flavor to our dishes. It is a table sculpture, with a solid oak base. But it is also, above all, a new gesture full of flavor, which brings into play all the senses, and perhaps even a sixth, that of amazement.
