Buenos Aires bans salt shakers

((via) I wonder if this will just lead cooks to try to salt food to taste before it comes to the table? For people who suffer from an almost clinical tendency to over-salt their food (like me), we'll be less inclined to sprinkle our food heavily with the salt shaker. But those who like very little salt (like Pnin) and almost never touch the salt shaker might well wind up eating more.

  1. Well, it is controversial what tehy are trying to do. The typical food in Argentina is the asado, which takes a lot of salt so I want to see how they are going to manage everything. I remember when I travelled there I stayed in a few apartments in Buenos Aires and in all of them, when I arrived, there was salt already. That is something that can never be missing in an Argentine home.
