RIVSALT™ is designed by Swedish designer Jens Sandringer. Jens came up with the concept while dining in Japan, where the master chef grated salt over the dishes using a large grater and big salt rock. An experience that sparked the initial product idea.
RIVSALT is a unique gastronomic experience and a new way of adding spices to food. A perfect gift for amateur chefs and foodies. It truly is functional art for your kitchen or tabletop. And a fun way to try the many flavors of different salt “rocks”.

Wine of the Week
Chateau Saint-Roch Kerbuccio “This wine features vibrant blackberries and spice on the nose, is full-bodied and concentrated on the palate and lingers long on the finish. Hints of crushed stone, dusty but fine tannins provide structure and the finish, while robust and flavorful, also conveys a sense of elegance. At this price, it’s one of the top bargains we’ve tasted all year.”
