In Person Author Talk: Naomi Duguid, The Miracle of Salt
Nov 1, 2022
06:30 pm - 08:00 pm
We are so excited to welcome James Beard Award–winning author Naomi Duguid to Book Larder to celebrate her new book, The Miracle of Salt: Recipes and Techniques to Preserve, Ferment, and Transform Your Food. Weaving together history, culinary science, and an expansive array of recipes, The Miracle of Salt is the first cookbook to explore the magic of salt in the global foodscape. Learn age-old techniques for making sauerkraut, miso, butter, prosciutto, kimchi, salt-fermented pickles, basturma, salt-preserved lemons, brined eggs, and much more. Create a vibrant “salt pantry” filled with enticing blends of salt and spices, and with easy condiments and preserves such as Spiced Green Mango Pickle and Dried Shrimp and Garlic Chutney. Read about essential salt-preserved flavorings such as soy sauce, fish sauce, pickled plums, salted anchovies, and salt cod. Naomi will be in conversation with local award-winning food writer Hsiao-Ching Chou.
You'll have two options for joining us: Book Included, or Author Talk Only. Naomi will sign your books after the talk.
Because Book Larder is a small space and we keep the door closed during author talks, a well-fitted face mask must be worn by all event guests. Thank you!
Reservations are non-refundable, and can include a signed copy of the $45 book. Can't attend but still want a signed copy? Order here for shipping or in-store pickup.
