ABOUT US

“Not another food website”, you groan. Wait, we promise we ARE different. Salt Magazine is a multi-platform gourmet media brand that is moving forward with new media trends and aims to continue boosting its dynamic online and video content. We are dedicated to covering news on food and drinks in Singapore and the South-East Asian region. Ultimately, we hope to create a discerning community to appreciate the provenance, the artistry and the conviviality of dining. So why the name SALT? As an essential ingredient in cooking, salt brings together, accentuates, and enhances flavours. In the same way, SALT magazine aims to bring out the best in food journalism with culinary prose, evocative photo-essays, and inspiring reads chronicling the way the world eats and drinks. Also, we thought the name “SALT” sounded cool. On print, we embrace tantalising long-form while up-to-minute dining news will be served piping hot online. With equal attention paid to both print and online platforms, SALT has an offbeat attitude that will inject a fresh new spirit to food content.

So come sit at our table and eat with us. Oh yes, and pass the salt please.

JOSHUA NG

Observant and mostly impartial, Joshua has an uncanny predilection for an appreciation of things. This English student yearns to see the coffee story told to people, more than just pretty cafes and tulips. His favourite quote: “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet…”

MILO

VIDEOGRAPHY INTERN

Milo loves milkshakes and Star Wars. That’s what she said without a breath when asked for a description of herself. From her response, we know that she is clear of herself and what she likes. She is the “complete package” design student, inclusive of the enigmatic quietness. She’s also the youngest on the SALT team, always hustling under the wing of her mentor, Nash.

Social Enterprise

SALT celebrates the sheer joy of food but we also want to do it in a meaningful way. As a registered Social Enterprise and a member of raiSE Singapore, CL Media aims to champion the discovery and growth of local talents from all walks of life.
