Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking
While cooking at Chez Panisse in California at the start of her career, Samin Nosrat noticed that amid the chaos of the kitchen there were four key principles that her fellow chefs would always fall back on to make their food better: Salt, Fat, Acid and Heat.
By mastering these four variables, Samin found the confidence to trust her instincts in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients. And with her simple but revolutionary method, she has taught masterclasses to give both professionals and amateurs the skills to cook instinctively.
Whether you want to balance your vinaigrette, perfectly caramelise your roasted vegetables or braise meltingly tender stews, Samin's canon of 100 essential recipes and their dozens of variations will teach you how.
Catch Samin, too, on Netflix's popular show of the same name: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat - where each of the four episodes concentrates on one of those elements.
Highly recommended by Cotswold Trading's marketing manager, Rachel, this is a book that will genuinely change your approach to both cooking and the appreciation of what you're eating, tasting and smelling!
