Product Review (NBD):

Everyone was impressed when Michael Pollan managed to summarize the huge and complex subject of what we should be eating in just seven words: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. Samin Nosrat has managed to summarize the huge and complex subject of how we should be cooking in just four words: Salt, fat, acid, heat. Everyone will be hugely impressed. --Yotam Ottolenghi, New York Times bestselling author of Jerusalem" "Everyone was impressed when Michael Pollan managed to summarize the huge and complex subject of what we should be eating in just seven words: 'Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.' Samin Nosrat has managed to summarize the huge and complex subject of how we should be cooking in just four words: 'Salt, fat, acid, heat.' Everyone will be hugely impressed."--Yotam Ottolenghi, New York Times bestselling author of Jerusalem "Nosrat's beautiful, approachable book demonstrates how these four are the only elements necessary to make delicious meals anywhere, any time."--Rapid City Journal "The book amounts to an incredibly engaging master class that helps free you from recipes so you can improvise like a pro. Nosrat's approach is foundational yet innovative: distilling the essence of cooking into four main concerns. With a full understanding of how each element effects flavor and texture, a home cook can easily extrapolate and apply these principles to unfamiliar ingredients or dishes and still cook with confidence...The curious cook will eventually find her copy of this book stained and dog-eared, as she consults its essential kitchen wisdom for years to come."--Cooking Light "Most cookbooks are filled with recipes, with or without a central theme. That's what a cookbook is for, right? A recent batch of cookbooks...have turned this notion on its ear, aiming, instead, to better prepare home cooks to build weekly menus and avoid food waste...the best book to come out of this new trend is, to my mind, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking by chef Samin Nosrat, with whimsical illustrations by Wendy MacNaughton. The book tackles each topic in its title in turn, showing how they contribute to great cooking, then offers experiments, recipes, and other ways to apply your new knowledge. It's not just a good cookbook; it's a good book, period."--Vox.com "Ever wish an acclaimed, professional chef would reveal the building blocks of great cooking? Well, here you have it. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat got her culinary start at Chez Panisse restaurant and has schooled scores of people, including author Michael Pollan, on how to cook. Now she's distilling her approach for us all."--EyeSwoon "Want to be not just a good cook, but a great one? Then this groundbreaking book from Samin Nosrat will help you master "the four notes of the culinary scale" giving you a whole new perspective on how you structure and create a dish."--Fine Dining Lovers "Simplicity and knowledge and beautiful drawings. This book is approachable and inspiring and lays a strong, strong foundation--Joy The Baker -Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is a wildly informative, new-generation, culinary resource. Samin Nosrat's wealth of experience comes together here in a pitch perfect combination of charm, narrative, straight-talk, illustration, and inspiration. Ticking all the boxes for new and seasoned cooks alike, this book meets you wherever you are in the kitchen, in all the right ways.---Heidi Swanson, New York Times bestselling author of Super Natural Cooking "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is a very important book not because it contains many excellent recipes, although it does, or because it is written by a Chez Panisse alum, although it is. It is important because it gives home cooks a compass with which to navigate their own kitchens, and it places trust in them that they will be able to use that compass. Samin's easygoing, cook-by-feel approach is never condescending or elitist. It is a step towards cooking without recipes and true empowerment (and joy!) in the kitchen."--John Becker and Megan Scott, 4th generation stewards of the New York Times bestselling Joy of Cooking "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is a wildly informative, new-generation, culinary resource.
