My name is Jay Bartholomew. I'm a self-taught chef wannabe with the simple goal of making the most delicious food, no matter how difficult the process may be. There are tricks to just about every dish and ingredient, but rarely does great food come from shortcuts. Season of Salt is a place for me to share my creations, recipes, and techniques. If you're at least willing to love to cook, then I hope you will find my content valuable. Otherwise, this will be no fun at all.
