Cooking as an Act of Love | Samin Nosrat [Best Of]

Read more

For Samin Nosrat, cooking is love. A way to gather, delight and savor time with those you love. Maybe, at this time that finds more of us home and cooking, it can become the same for you.

Samin's New York Times bestselling book, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, received the James Beard award and her Netflix series of the same name is a stunning exploration of food, culture, travel, and life. Called “the next Julia Child” by NPR’s All Things Considered, Samin has been cooking professionally since 2000, when she first stumbled into the kitchen at the legendary Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California.

In this Best of episode, we explore Samin's journey, growing up the child of first-generation immigrant parents in southern California and feeling like the outsider. We dive into her lifelong love of writing and books, her experience with anxiety and depression and work to be present and joyful in her life. And, we track her "strange left turn" into the world of food and, now, with the massive success of her book and Netflix series, how she's navigating the pace, exposure and opportunities coming her way.

Samin Nosrat on the Joy of Home Cooking

Read more

We sat down with Samin Nosrat just after the premiere of her Netflix show, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, to talk about how she managed to transform a cookbook into a piece of television in such a short amount of time, how growing up eating Iranian food informed her own cooking, and why, in her opinion, a PB&J counts as a legitimate dinner option. Most importantly, though, she explains why she chose to eschew restaurants in favor of focusing on home cooks and artisans—the majority of whom are women—on the show.

This week's episode is a rerun from December 2018. We'll be back with new episodes (recorded from home) next week.

S5, Ep6 How to Fail: Samin Nosrat

Read more

Oh, Samin Nosrat! Where do I start? With her ebullient personality and wildly infectious laugh? With her four-part Netflix show, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat where she travels the world eating freshly baked focaccia and Japanese seaweed? Or with the award-winning, bestselling cookbook of the same name, that revolutionised the way we thought about food?

I don't know where to start. So let me just tell you that she is one of the bubbliest, most open and generous interviewees I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. She joins me to talks about growing up in San Diego, the child of Iranian parents, who was 'the only brown kid' in her school, and what this sense of outsidership taught her. She talks about overnight fame, and the weirdness that comes with that, as well as failing to write, what happens when your business fails and the one memorable time she burned the sauce for a dinner she was cooking for Hillary Clinton. Oh, and the story of how she got the description of osmosis wrong in the science part of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat and was berated by critics. Also the way she talks about cassoulet will probably leave you feeling very hungry.

Thank you so much Samin for coming on my podcast!


Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat is published by Canongate and is available to order here
