New NPR Food Blog: The Salt

Those who like a little popular culture with their food will enjoy the new NPR food blog, The Salt. It’s selection of topics are exactly what I like in a blog – a well-written romp across an expansive array, like eating at that long buffet your grandparents loved, updated for your tastes. In a quick review, The Salt reviews a Christmas beer from Denmark, our penchant for mini-food, eating during a hurricane, and grilled cheese doughnuts. For those of you who felt the NPR Food Podcast just isn’t long enough, hop over to The Salt.
