“Salt”, as Naomi Duguid says, “is the only food we all need.” Come join us as this award-winning writer takes a deep dive into the miracle of salt and its essential role in preserving, fermenting, and transforming food. And she will dish out a generous serving of salt history, harvesting methods and recipes as she quotes from her just-published book, The Miracle of Salt.
“In pre-modern times, access to salt in various forms depended on geography and politics: wars were fought over access,” she says. “Humans around the world have used salt as an essential tool for survival; it all gives me a sense of wonder at human creativity and inventiveness.”
