Q: Is sea salt a healthier option than regular table salt? A: Both sea salt and table salt are composed of sodium and chloride. Sodium is crucial to good health. It helps your body maintain a balance of fluids, keeps the nervous system running smoothly and influences muscle movement. But too much can cause high blood pressure. Aim to consume no more than the 2,300-milligram daily limit recommended by the American Heart Association. All salts add sodium to your diet. A teaspoon of a coarse variety, however, contributes slightly less than the same amount of the finer table salt.

A better butter  Just as Italians debate the subtleties of their finest olive oils, the French obsess over butters. One of my longtime favorites, Echiré, has been the butter gold standard at Bibou, and the equally wonderful Pamplie (with sea salt) lathers the baguettes at sister restaurant Le Chéri. But a new contender has arrived at Di Bruno Bros. in a big wicker basket from one of France's rock-star cheese mongers, Rodolphe Le Meunier. This "beurre de baratte" - churned in the old-school way as opposed to modern centrifuge methods - isn't le bonmarché at $12.99 a pound.

Let Craig LaBan have all the fun with diver scallops, as he did in this space last week? Another great two-scallop appetizer ($11) comes off the stove of Mike Stollenwerk at Little Fish. He whips up a cauliflower gratin of bechamel and fontina cheese, sears the salted-and-peppered scallops, and plates them atop a smudge of slightly sweet raisin emulsion made of sherry wine vinegar and oil. A dusting of sea salt at the very last moment gives the scallops a special crunch.

I am tasting salt for the first time. After years of coveting its crystalline crunch on pretzels, its salty flocking on popcorn and chips, I am here with several shakers and I'm tasting the stuff, straight. Kosher salt, iodized salt, free-flowing table salt, purified crystals of sea salt, potassium salt, reduced-sodium salt, pretzel salt, and several varieties of raw sea salt lie on plates across my kitchen counter. Some are as coarse as gravel, while others are powdery fine. They differ in color, moisture content, transparency, flavor, and, most surprisingly, aroma.

MODENA, Italy - As we ascended the winding stairs into the garret of Acetaia Giuseppe Giusti, a familiar musky grape aroma wafted over us, one that had we had previously associated with ancient wine cellars carved out of chalky loam. However, it was not wine we were going to taste, but another product of grapes, authentic Balsamico di Modena, the globally renowned vinegar that, in some cases, is so precious it is served via eyedropper. Modena is a city of contrasts. Two prominent buildings pierce the azure Italian sky; the 12th-century white-marble-clad cathedral and the racy, yellow curved roof of the Enzo Ferrari museum.

Makes 18 servings 1 pound of unsalted butter, softened 11/2 cups of sifted 10X or confectioner's sugar (Sifting is a must, due to massive lumpage) 4 cups of flour 21/2 teaspoons of sea salt 1. Beat the butter and sugar with a mixer until fluffy. Then, I prefer to mix in the flour and salt by hand. This will avoid over mixing, potentially creating a tough cookie. (We may desire that quality in a person, but not in our shortbread.) 2. Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper, the baker's best friend, leaving an overhang to facilitate removing the baked product.
