Salt & Silver Latin America : Travel, Surf, Cook (Hardcover) (Johannes Riffelmacher)
About this item
Salt & Silver is the first book to blend traveling, surfing, and the food cultures of Central and South America together through the travels/stories of two hot, young guys.Salt & Silver traces the journey of Johannes Riffelmacher and Thomas Kowalski as they travel through Central- and South America—reporting on all the best surfing locations, chronicling the stories of local surfers and restaurant owners, and compiling recipes representative of each area. The narrative begins in Cuba with beautiful images of the city and the beaches, as well as stories related to the Cuban surfing community and a discussion of popular Cuban dishes. Next is a tour of Mexico—first with street tacos, a trip through Mexican markets, and day spent in the urban graffitiscene of Guadalajara; then with Tostadas de Pulpo (Octopus Crackers), Shrimp and Portobello Burgers, and glimpse into small town life in the remote surfing town of San Pancho. The Mexican leg of the journey draws to a conclusion with 7-meter-waves, BBQ, and Tajine in Rio Nexpa, as well as “a perfect righthander barreling of a point” in the scenic La Ticla. After Mexico comes a long list of sites and sounds as the two men makes their way through Nicaragua, Cost Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, and finally Chile, exploring the beaches as well as the kitchens of each location. Interspersed throughout the pages of the trip are about 60-70 regional recipes, a series of stunning photographs (approximately 250), and a wide array of tips and stories ranging from social commentary on the Cuban surf scene to pointers on how to rent a “Hamaquera” in La Ticla for $3 a night.
