Salt in Bacon & the Art of Living By Eben van Tonder 21 June 2021
In Bacon & the Art of Living, I dedicate three chapters to salt. It remains one of my favourite study subjects. The truth is that I only scratched the surface. It is a subject that I will return to often and I am planning to expand on Chapter 10.12, The Salt of the Land and the Sea. Here I present the three chapters for those who are interested in a more thematic study.
Chapters on Salt
- Chapter 10.11: The Salt of the Earth
- Chapter 10.12: The Salt of the Land and the Sea
- Chapter 10.13: The Salt of Meat
I have written far more about the subject than is presented in my book on bacon. Those who are interested in exploring this fascinating subject further are directed to the following articles, all of which I used in compiling the three chapters listed above.
- The Salt Bridge
