SALT FAT ACID HEAT COOKBOOK Personally Signed for us by author Samin Nosrat
$32 (Regularly $35)
We have had the good fortune over the past few years to know both personally and professionally two incredibly talented cooks who have now both written books that received the coveted James Beard Award…much deserved!
And we have chosen to offer them to you, first Joshua McFadden’s Six Seasons, and another friend’s offering, Samin Nosrat and her equally amazing Salt Fat Acid Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking.
As with Joshua’s book, Samin has individually signed each one with a note, and as with Six Seasons, we are thrilled that she has chosen to mention KATZ Farm in the book as well…a lovely bonus for us!
Samin cut her teeth at the world famous Chez Panisse Restaurant and this is how we met over 10 years ago since, as many of you know, we are fortunate that they have been using our organic oils and vinegars in the kitchens for many years.
She has a richness about her writing that stands out and engages you, and the fabulous illustrations throughout the book almost feel “tactile.” Yet, she has managed to reduce cooking into simple concepts to help us all make the most out of what we have in front of us in the kitchen….not just the “what” but the “why”, which so many cookbooks fail to do. There is good reason Alice Waters has called her America’s next great cooking teacher…high praise indeed.
She also has shared a long relationship with Michael Pollan from whom she took a food writing class years ago, which then led to her in turn becoming his personal cooking teacher. He writes an infusive forward to the book:
What I love most about this book is that Samin has somehow found a way to bring both her passion for, and intelligence about, cooking to the page. The results are a book that instructs and delights in equal measure…You will want to make room for this one!
Samin has a Four-part Netflix series beginning on October 19th that will be of the same name, Salt Fat Acid Heat with one of the episodes taking place in the kitchen at Chez Panisse…don't miss it!
