Review: Salt and Slush

Salt and Slush - Winter Recipes Nova Scotia was produced in 2001. This simple zine, with well-placed winter inspired graphics and classic winter dishes makes me want to start a pot of chili, wrap myself up in flannel and curl up with a hot beverage. This zine is full of soups, stews, and roasted dishes. The Parsnip Pie intrigues me!

Salt and Slush #2 Winter Recipes was produced in 2007. This zine doesn't invoke the same sense of winter as the first zine does. I believe that this is due to the collaborative nature of the second issue. It's a nice zine but most of the features feel like filler around a small core of recipes that are similar in style to those that appeared in the first zine. The second zine includes recipes with meat which also limits the appeal of this zine.

I would skip #2 and pick up the original.
