A Gift that Gives Back

“The Opera Collection” of seasoning blends was created by the Salt Table to honor and to support the annual Savannah VOICE Festival. For each opera product purchase, $1.00 of each bottle and $4.50 per gift set is donated by The Salt Table to the Savannah VOICE Festival to help support the programs.

Over the years Carol Legasse of The Salt Table has designed hand-blended salts and seasonings that have been featured at the annual VOICE Galas in NYC presented by the Savannah VOICE Festival’s sister organization, VOICExperience. These annual galas honor the best of opera. Three of those blends are now available for you to enjoy and with every purchase you are helping to support the arts.

“These blends are as unique as the human voice itself, full of color and flavor for every dish — give them as gifts and you are giving back to arts education! it’s a win, win. Thank you.” – Maria Zouves and Sherrill Milnes
