As illuminated in his 1962 novel Big Sur, Jack Kerouac and his cronies frequently traveled on the “Old Coast Road” to gather at a colleague’s cabin, earning it the nickname “The Beatnik Byway.” Today, the road remains the same narrow dirt road those literary legends once traversed, still winding around the mossy riparian forests, over babbling brooks through the damp Bixby Canyon. The ingredients in this blend can be found along this amazing drive.Bring it to your table with this blend.

"Three Peaks" is their long-awaited twist on the classic Lemon Pepper!

Procuring this 100% hand-harvested salt requires adventurous harvesting on the rocky Big Sur coastline, followed by a complex dehydration process that relies on several environmental factors. The big effort that it takes to get it is rewarded in the final product; a pure, delicious bridge to the natural world in tiny crystal form. Available in coarse salt texture, use this as your pièce de résistance during final plating or replace the salt in your signature recipe. Pico Blanco is an all-natural substitute for everyday seasoning needs. This serves as the base for all Big Sur Salts blends.
Spanish for "White Peak,” Pico Blanco is perhaps the most recognizable mountain in Big Sur’s Santa Lucia Range. Located at the northwestern end of the Los Padres National Forest a few miles south of Monterey, Pico Blanco splits the north and south forks of the Little Sur River. It boasts a prominent 3,709 foot peak containing the largest limestone deposit in the state of California.
