Product description

Review

"Kurlansky finds the world in a grain of salt...fascination and surprise regularly erupt from the detail." --The New York Times Book Review

This is terrific food writing; like fleur de sel, something scarce and to be savored." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Kurlansky continues to prove himself remarkably adept at taking a most unlikely candidate and telling its tale with epic grandeur. " --Los Angeles Times Book Review

"If you are drawn to history and curious about the origins of foods, allow Mark Kurlansky to take you on an incredible journey through the centuries by way of salt." --The Baltimore Sun

"Kurlansky does a masterful job of expanding the reader's horizons....This book of minutely researched data and history can literally make the mouth water." --The Boston Globe
