On a walking tour of nearby Piran, our group learned of the importance of salt production in the area. For centuries, salt from sea water was shipped to Venice. Salt is another important image of the area.
Massive buildings along the shore, each over the length of a football field, once stored salt.
Salt is packaged and sold to tourists in specialty shops.

I am a university professor with interests in the relationship of food and culture. I am also a Fulbright Scholar and will deploy to Montenegro in September, 2014 where I will collaborate in teaching and learning about food and culture as well as food tourism. This blog is dedicated to sharing my experiences in Montenegro with you. It is also dedicated to my son Chad who mixes artistry and savvy in teaching people how to bake bread and make pizza.
