“In the centuries-old squabble between sweet and salty, I’ve always sided with the latter and simply love this entire compendium. Cynthia Nims has created the definitive handbook to snackage perfectly tailored to the salty dog I am. Complete with history, definitions, and recipes, Salty Snacks is comprehensive, inventive, and destined for much use in the Batali kitchen.”
—Mario Batali, chef, author, and cohost of The Chew
“As someone who gave up sugar for salt when I went to cooking school, I applaud the slant of this book. And it gets better—not only are these snacks salty, but they’re also crunchy. So now you too can make your own chips, crackers, pretzels, and more. And the assortment of snacks is wildly creative; even vegetables and grains get dressed up in a snack suit. This book would be a perfect housewarming or holiday gift.”
—Sara Moulton, host of Sara’s Weeknight Meals and author of the Sara’s Kitchenapp
