We’ve fallen in love with watching Netflix’s new “SALT FAT ACID HEAT”. It follows Samin Nosrat through her adventures eating food across the world. The approachable chef delves into what we love about food and how to accomplish it in your own home kitchen.
We all have a thing or two to learn from chefs across the world when it comes to enhancing our cooking skills and being a good or great chef. We follow Samin as she travels from destination to destination teaching the delicate art of balancing flavors and ingredients. She has discovered through her years of cooking the key to a fantastic meal: salt, fat, acid, and heat.
Throughout the Netflix series, she takes us to Japan, Italy, Mexico, and Berkely and introduces us to a variety of experts. We guarantee that you will want to try some of the delicious and simple recipes that she makes throughout the show. Whether you are attempting the crispy, salty Ligurian Focaccia for your next Italian meal or Soy-Braised Short Ribs, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you begin incorporating these four elements into your dishes.
The show is interesting because as the viewer, you’re able to meet different chefs and food experts from across the world and see how they’ve been processing cheese, butchering meat, and harvesting salt or olives for hundreds of years. It’s a taste of history and a great way to learn some interesting facts about products from different cultures.
Samin Nosrat “is a cook, teacher, and author of the James Beard Award-winning New York Times Bestseller Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. She is an Eat columnist at The New York Times Magazine and the host and executive producer of the Netflix original documentary series based on her book. She lives, cooks, gardens, and laughs in Berkeley, California.” It is easy to relate with Samin; she seems to genuinely love food and the culture and history that comes with the ingredients she works with.
