I don't really like salt. I never add salt in recipes because I can taste it and it weirds me out. Salt is for salted caramel and that is the only thing it is for, pretty much. And yet I have witnessed salt being put in salad (why?), coffee, and on top of pretty much every dish - which usually already contains salt. Salt is a big hit in Germany. I can't be too judgmental about food, since I put Tabasco on nearly everything in wildly dangerous amounts (Tabasco and marmalade on tofu is a classic that horrifies all who witness it), but I am.
Magyk is a book I finished reading. It was alright. I had a crush on the Big Bad and I identify strongly with the Aunt. I'm looking forward to the day I, too, live alone in the wilderness, keeping strange secrets, caring for herbs, and adopting children.
