Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking by Samin Nosrat

£30.00

While cooking at Chez Panisse 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.

Once you have the hang of each starting point, a wealth of flavour possibilities awaits, each related in Niki’s signature combination of culinary science, history, chefs’ wisdom and personal anecdote. You will realise that recipes that you had thought were outside of your experience are reassuringly similar to things you’ve made a dozen times before. It will give you the confidence to experiment with flavour, and adapt with the seasons or the contents of your fridge.

You will, in short, learn to cook `by heart’- and that’s where the fun really begins.
