SaltWorks® Is Grilling with Food Network Magazine

WOODINVILLE, Wash., July 23, 2008 — Food Network’s new magazine has hit the stands and SaltWorks, Inc., the country’s leading gourmet sea salt company, is so confident Food Network Magazine’s Summer Grilling Issue will be a hit with home cooks, it has placed a two-page, inside-cover spread to showcase Artisan Gourmet Salts and introduce Fusion flavored sea salts.

With flavors like Chile Verde, Lime Fresco, Black Truffle and Thai Ginger, SaltWorks’ Artisan® Salt Company Fusion® flavored sea salts will enhance any grilling recipe. Through SaltWorks’ proprietary process, Artisan Salt Company’s Fusion Sea Salts feature the fresh flavors of natural foods and spices right inside the salt crystals. It’s the next generation of gourmet seasoning — and the company is pleased to introduce it to Food Network Magazine’s readership.

“SaltWorks gourmet salts are a perfect fit with Food Network’s new magazine and its readers,” stated Mark Zoske, president of SaltWorks. “The inaugural issue is all about summer grilling. It’s the right venue for us to show off our brand-new Fusion line of flavored sea salts.”

Available in large national retail stores and supermarkets, Food Network Magazine will serve as a source of inspiration for readers while providing practical strategies for entertaining, cooking, and enjoying food. The network’s timing couldn’t be better: with no relief at the gas pumps, more people than ever are choosing to stay home this summer and enjoy time with their friends and family. For many, backyard grilling is a summer staple. But thanks in part to the popularity of Food Network and its chefs, the neighborhood barbeque has evolved beyond the old charcoal grill.

That’s where Food Network Magazine’s Summer Grilling Issue lends a hand. Just like Food Network’s line-up of shows, the magazine is packed with advice, recipes and tips from the network’s celebrity chefs. The Summer Grilling Issue will also include recipes for delicious summertime dinners and drinks, will show home cooks how to whip up the perfect burger and will take readers to Florida’s South Beach, where the network’s brightest stars will showcase their grilling skills. And SaltWorks is excited to be part of it, says Zoske.

“We owe a lot of our success to Food Network. Their celebrity chefs use our salt on air all the time,” Zoske stated. “From the very beginning, Food Network has enlightened home chefs on the importance of using natural gourmet salts. Grilling is no exception. In fact, our all-natural smoked sea salts are a great choice for summer grilling.”
