Modern Salt is an online magazine which will occasionally publish in paper.
Salt is essential to life, and the oldest preservative. We want to preserve and celebrate what is good, be it a wonderful wine from Oregon, a loaf of bread from Puglia, a beautifully made jersey from a traditional factory in Leicester.
There are many sites concerned with food.
What makes us different is the quality of our writers and artists and how we look at food, placing it in culture, in history, in memory.
In the cacophony of information overload and globalisation we look at quiet still places where people are successfully marrying traditional methods and modern technology, mindful of the environment and the local economy.
We hope you will join us, and participate. Tell us your stories, in words, pictures or film.
