A Bit About Us

cropped-basil-salt-4.jpgWelcome to Basil & Salt

If you’ve been with us for a while you’ve noticed a ‘not so subtle’ change on our site and across social media as of late.

I am excited to share that we have taken our little site to print! Yes, a real, page turning, paper magazine, filled with recipes, cocktails, wine, beer and travel recommendations, focusing on the enjoyment of the gourmet lifestyle. Our digital issues have been live since November 2017 and our first “print” issue will  be distributed in April of this year. Our website, the dot-com, in harmony with the magazine, contains lighter, energizing content designed to complement our printed pages.

Our name isn’t the only feature that has changed. The site has always been driven by a collection of recipes, cocktails and culinary news and our printed editions of Basil & Salt are infused with a clean, “classic” look, displaying hints of brightness and vigor, enhanced by the “voices” of talented writers and artists, some of which you may be familiar with as they write for several publications.

Our online site will always remain free of charge and our interactive digital and print publication will be subscription only. You can subscribe at this link.

Thank you for being such a huge part of what we do every day. I look forward to traveling this road with you and heading into a bright new adventure.
