Salt, sake & shiraz: the whole salt story

Presented by: Olsson’s Salt Masterclass, Alex Olsson

Olsson Industries, established in 1948, is Australia’s oldest family-owned producer of sea salt in Australia. Olsson’s salt is unique because of the location of its salt-pans in the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia and Port Alma (near Rockhampton) in Queensland. Both locations share some of the most pristine bodies of water on earth resulting in sea salt rich in marine minerals and trace-elements.

Alexandra Olsson will present this in-depth look at the fascinating world of salt.

Following her lifelong passion for food, after high school Alex attended SITC Tete-de-Ran, a hospitality school in Switzerland before returning to Australia to commence her career in the restaurant and hotel trade.

Alex joined the family company in 1997 and has been instrumental in the development of a unique set of sea salt products including Australia’s first grey salt: Olsson’s Macrobiotic Sea Salt, Olsson’s Sea Salt Flakes, Olsson’s Truffle Salt and Olsson’s Red Gum Smoked Salt (a collaboration between Ross Lusted and Pialligo Estate Smokehouse, Canberra).

Salt is one of the most ubiquitous but misunderstood ingredients in our modern food culture. During this masterclass, light will be shed on many misconceptions surrounding this seemingly innocuous substance. The masterclass will conclude with a food and beverage salt-matching experience showcasing Olsson’s salts, Cupitt’s Winery Shiraz, Japanese Sake, Pepe Saya butter, Zokoko dark chocolate, Cupitt’s Cheese and many other delicious surprises.

And if that wasn’t enough, all guests will also take home the NEW Olsson’s Well Seasoned Traveller Gift pack valued at $22
