Magazine F Issue 1 (Salt) is available now on This first issue of Magazine F takes the reader on a journey to understand the history, and tradition of salt. From salt production on a Danish island, salt cured jamon in Spain, to making tsukemono in the kitchens of japan. Exploring the relationship humans have had with salt over the centuries.

Salt is an essential ingredient, a compound of sodium and chlorine, has had a wide impact on society, culture, economy, and of course, people’s lifestyle. The first city ever built by Homo Sapiens was located close to the Dead Sea where high-saline water yielded salt easily. In the ancient times, people waged war against each other for salt. It also contributed to the development of traditional foods, such as jamón, tsukemono, and kimchi, used as the catalyst to preserve them for a long time.

For thousands of years, salt has played a critical role in all kitchens around the world to enhance the favor, and it now stands as a symbol in itself on people’s table.

Magazine F is a food documentary magazine co-created by Magazine B and Baemin, which introduces one particular ingredient that has had a significant impact on people’s table. Baemin has become a critical mover and shaker in South Korean contemporary food culture, and B provides a balanced view on brands through multi-layered stories. This collaboration brings together these two areas of expertise in F, which is hoped to become a record of essential ingredients and food culture of our time. Magazine B’s sister publication, Magazine F enriches your experience with everyday ingredients. Each issue explores how an ingredient is grown, prepared, and shared in different cultures around the world, through in-depth interviews, inspiring stories, and beautiful photos.
