About this event
Naomi Duguid, who’s taken food lovers to many corners of the globe, now invites readers and cooks on a very different journey—a deep dive into the miracle of salt and its essential role in preserving, fermenting, and transforming food.
Duguid will look at salt’s history and its impact on culture and cuisine across the globe. She’ll explain how salt — the chemical — works, how it’s used to ferment and preserve, and how that knowledge can be used to make basics like miso, sauerkraut and basturma. She’ll talk about what to cook with salt-preserved ingredients like salt cod, kimchi, fish sauce and preserved lemons and how to create a “salt pantry” with enticing blends of salt and spices. Duguid will wrap up the talk by elaborating on the ways salt transforms everything it touches, from vegetables, soups, mains, pasta dishes, to desserts. A Q&A will follow the talk.
