Sharing the Table with Jacobsen Salt Co.

I had the opportunity to help photograph the food culture of the Pacific Northwest along side photographer and friend Jeff Shaw. Together we wanted to tell a clean story line about Ben Jacobsen and his process to create artisan flake salt. The day ended with an amazing dinner using Jacobsen Salt, put on by Ava Gene's and dessert by Salt & Straw of Portland, OR.

Owner & Founder Ben Jacobsen
Netarts Bay, the water source for Jacobsen Salt Co.
Step 1: A pump carries water from the bay to large holding tanks.
Step 1 Continued: Water is filtered from the bay into 1 of 2 large holding tanks. 
Step 2: Taken from the holding tanks to large pots, the sea water is boiled for refinement.
Step 3: Water is taken from the pots to evaporation tables where the crystals begin to form. 
Step 3 Continued: The water is filtered and reused in the evaporation tables three times before the remaining water is discarded.
The end result is a wide variety of flake sea salts & mineral salts.
Jacobsen-hat-wearing-chefs from acclaimed restaurant Ava Gene's (Portland, OR) were invited to host a meal and feature the wide use of Jacobsen salt.
The meal was topped off with a unique dessert by the owner of Salt & Straw (Portland, OR), Tyler Malek.
