In Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, Samin Nosrat asks you to focus your culinary imagination on four vital elements: Salt, which enhances flavor; Fat, which delivers flavor and generates texture; Acid, which balances flavor; and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food.

By stripping away other concerns, she's directing your attention and work to the things that matter most in a dish.

Nosrat, whose professional cooking career began at Chez Panisse, is a confidence-inspiring guide to getting back to basics in order to truly soar in the kitchen. Watercolor illustrations throughout by Wendy McNaughton add an engaging air to the book and help make its fundamental points more memorable.
