Adam Sachs hosts S.A.L.T. Lab Radio, taking food & drink enthusiasts deep into the richest culinary cultures, in the true spirit of Silversea’s pioneering new culinary programme.
Silversea Cruises has announced the launch of S.A.L.T. Lab Radio—a new culinary podcast, produced in the same immersive spirit as the cruise line’s pioneering S.A.L.T. programme (Sea and Land Taste), which will use storytelling to unlock entire ecosystems around culinary discovery when it launches aboard new ship Silver Moon. S.A.L.T. Lab Radio is available to stream at no charge on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts.
Hosted by Adam Sachs, Silversea’s Director of the S.A.L.T. programme and former Editor-in-Chief of Saveur Magazine, and with special guest appearances from culinary experts, each episode of the new podcast will take listeners deep into the world’s richest culinary cultures. Its setting will change according to the geographical positioning of Silversea’s Silver Moon and the S.A.L.T. programme. Along with Sachs, the podcast is co-produced by Howie Kahn, Rob Corso, and Casey Kahn at FreeTime Media.
Sachs and team have travelled far and wide to digest the most engaging culinary stories and meet the most fascinating guests: recorded on location, S.A.L.T. Lab Radio will enable listeners to follow food to its source, to meet the people preserving culinary traditions, creating new ones, and teaching us all how to eat in more well-informed ways.
The first episode of the new podcast is available to stream at no charge on iTunes, Spotify, and Google Podcasts, as well as on Silversea’s blog:
EPISODE ONE: Legends of the Border: Friuli, Slovenia, Trieste
In S.A.L.T. Lab Radio’s first episode, Sachs speaks with three culinary innovators along the border of Italy and Slovenia: Ana Roš, widely regarded as Slovenia’s best chef and Co-Owner of Hiša Franko, the first restaurant in Slovenia to earn two Michelin Stars; Antonia Klugmann, Head Chef and Owner of the Michelin-starred restaurant L’Argine a Vencò in Collio, Italy; and Mateja Gravner, who represents the illustrious Gravner family winery in the Italian-Slovenian motherland and abroad, which straddles the Italy-Slovenia border and utilises ancient winemaking techniques.
As well as Ana’s quest to bring honour to her ingredients, the hurdles Mateja’s family faces, and the way Antonia draws influence from her complicated heritage, Sachs discusses Trieste’s most celebrated cookbook, ancient wine making techniques, and the world’s most surprising potato.
