Sparkt My Interest

Steel City Salt Co. Is Your Food's New BFF

Brownies finished with ghost pepper salt? Check. Margaritas rimmed with lemon lime salt? Get in my mouth. Steaks cooked on a salt slab? Dinner at my place this weekend.


Stroll along the Strip District and you'll encounter rows of incredible local shops punctuated by stand-alone tables, vendors, and food trucks that perfectly showcase Pittsburgh's culture. Some of them I've seen, but never stopped at, but some have sparked my interest (get it?!) so much that I've become a loyal follower. And Steel City Salt Co. was my first obsession. They've since grown into their own brick-and-mortar in Millvale and can be found across local shops in Pittsburgh.

John and Candy have carved a space out for themselves in the Pittsburgh food scene, creating artisan salts and accessories (shout out salt shot glasses ) that will level up your appreciation for the saltier things in life. Brownies finished with ghost pepper salt? Check. Margaritas rimmed with lemon lime salt? Get in my mouth. Steaks cooked on a salt slab? Dinner at my place this weekend.

Check out our interview to learn more about the drool-worthy ways to use artisan salts, and get cooking!
