 h1. Dear readers,

 The first time I met [/user/hsawtelle "Hank Sawtelle,"] almost a year ago, he'd just come from culinary-school class and was still wearing his chef's whites. We discussed whether he might do an externship at Culinate, but because he got an amazing opportunity elsewhere, he didn't join us right away. Happily, though, he has now.

 Hank's writing our latest column, a Q&A of a technical nature called [/columns/askhank/ "Ask Hank"]. He brings his love of research (Hank's a former patent attorney) and technique to culinary topics. This week, he addresses salt. 

 As the name of the column suggests, Hank will be answering questions. If you'd like to pose a question, send him a note at Go ahead: everything you always wanted to know about cooking but were afraid to ask.

 P.S. Read about one of my favorite new cookbooks, The Paley's Place Cookbook, and watch a video featuring the book's author, Vitaly Paley.
