Salt of the Earth Contest, Win Copy of Salted by Mark Bitterman

It might not have been the best idea to announce our first contest of 2011 on January 1st.

To make up for our faux-pas, we extended deadline for entries to Wednesday, January 12, 2011.

What's the prize?

Prize is a copy of Salted (Ten Speed Press) by Mark Bitterman.


In his 'salt of the earth' book, Mark introduces us to a world of salt, its importance not only to taste and to health.

Salt once was as good as gold if you had some to trade.

How can you win a copy of 'Salted'?

Simple, answer the following question:

Name 2 Sea Salts of a specific origin?

E-mail your answer to info [at] njconcierges [dot] com

All entries must be received by Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 7 PM (Eastern US)

There is 1 copy to win so this contest is on a first come first served basis.

Please Note: Contest is limited to US and Canadian readers.
