To the delight of booksellers across America, it has been almost impossible to keep enough copies of Samin Nosrat’s cookbook Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat in stock, so popular has the Iranian-American chef become since her Netflix show debuted in fall 2018. The 38-year-old chef, who lives in Berkeley, California, comes from a line of gleeful, food loving chefs (think Nigella Lawson and the Two Fat Ladies) who are not going to guilt anyone for having an appetite. “My whole message is, sit down with your friend or your family for dinner and one by one, one table at a time, that will make the world a better place,” she told The Cut last October. After starting her career as a busser at Alice Water’s legendary Chez Panisse, she honed her writing skills under the tutelage of Michael Pollan, and appeared on his Netflix show, Cook, before sitting down to work on her own seminal cookbook.
