Staff Reviews


Amazing, big-flavor recipes for food-obsessed people from one of social media’s most beloved and popular personalities Henry Laporte a.k.a. @Salt_Hank.

Salt Hank’s love for food began when he first tasted salami on Christmas Day at six years old, and it changed the trajectory of his life. Hank, also known as Henry Laporte, now makes big-personality videos about the most flavor-packed food imaginable for millions of die-hard fans. His TikTok and Instagram videos may not have a lot of talking (except to capture Hank’s gasps of joy when he tastes the final dish), but they do have many mouthwatering close-ups of dripping sauce, juicy meats, crispy bread, and whatever else is sure to stir the heart of viewers and leave them craving more.

Salt Hank is his first cookbook that includes an entire chapter of fried food; main courses like Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos or Duck Breast with Potato Chips and Pan Sauce; a chapter dedicated to sauces and dips because Salt Hank wouldn’t be Salt Hank without decadent sauces; plenty of recipes for pickles; and of course, sandwiches…a lot of sandwiches.

Including viral favorites like his Lamb Burger, Steak Frites Sandwich, Vodka Parmesan, and Pesto Chicken this book also includes brand-new recipes. If the incredibly delicious recipes and Hank’s (sometimes irreverent) sense of humor aren’t enticing enough, the brilliant photography will make just about anyone drool. Hank also offers insider advice on how you can create awesome food photography and videos. This book is perfect for fans but it is also for anyone who loves great-tasting food.

About the Author

Henry Laporte, also known as Salt Hank, is a recipe developer and content creator known for his over-the-top, viral recipes.

That spirit is carried through his entertaining recipe videos across his social channels. With his passion for helping his online community learn how to make mouthwatering food, mostly from scratch, and his charming wit, Henry has left an indelible mark on his millions of fans who are equally as food-obsessed as he is.
