Also known as “King Salt”, “white gold” or “salt of life” it has traditionally be used in cooking, baths and other beauty treatments due to it having the world’s highest elemental content, with 84 minerals and trace elements essential to the body’s health & wellbeing.
The wall we’ve created in our dry ageing chamber consists of over 700 of these Himalayan salt bricks. Each of the bricks has been hand cut and shipped in especially for us from Pakistan near to the Himalayas.
There are a number of effects going on which enhances the flavour of the meat, firstly the salt bricks help to draw moisture from the surrounding air and meat, the lowered humidity helps inhibit the growth of unwanted bacteria on the meat. The negative ions from the salt then counteract with the positive ions of the meat giving a unique sweet, flavour. The bricks also aid in purifying the air in the chamber and it is noticeable the clean, fresh atmosphere when entering.
By aging the beef for a minimum of 4 weeks in the Himalayan salt chamber and maintaining the right level of humidity, temperature, and our uv lighting the results are simply stunning!! Steaks like you’ve never tasted before!!
