“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs… and returns home to find it.” – George Moore
After serving our country for twenty years as a U.S. Naval Officer, I have the desire to stay connected to the sea and to the place where I would retire from the Navy, beautiful Newport, Rhode Island.
During my naval career I was fortunate to have traveled and sailed all over the world while visiting over 40 countries along the way. I was also very fortunate to have been assigned with NATO and stationed with my family in Naples, Italy for 3 amazing and adventurous years. It was here, living in a coastal Italian region that I really learned to appreciate the use of good finishing sea salts. Sprinkled on top of fresh tomato bruschetta, a pinch to season some excellent local olive oil to dip your bread into, or a dash on top of a freshly grilled fish…nothing tastes better than seasoning a fish with the salt it swam in! Having seen sea salt productions in my travels in Sicily and France has made me think of the possibility of making my own sea salt here in the beautiful Ocean State. At first the thought was a bit of a novelty. Although the more I thought about it, read and researched it the idea soon became a passion. Having studied oceanography in college, serving as a naval officer sailing the seas and having a passion to cook, made the idea of harvesting sea salt seem like such a natural fit…and it is!
