TV Dinner: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat

TV Dinner: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat

Samin Nosrat, Netflix 🥄🥄🥄🥄🥄

From this week, I will be reviewing a food show that I watch as I eat dinner off a tray. I am starting with the show Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat showing over Netflix.

Based on chef Samin Nosrat’s bestseller Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking, the four-episode show is infotainment at its best. Nosrat takes us through Italy (fat), Japan (salt), Yucatan (acid) and California (heat), inspiring us to throw dieting out the window and eat sensibly to enjoy the richness of taste and flavour of food.

Each episode shows the joy of cooking as we are taken to the source of excellent ingredients and traditional ways of making condiments including soy sauce and honey.

By the end of the series, I felt a sense of satisfaction usually experienced when you return home after travelling the world. The satisfaction also comes from seeing how good food is cooked, retaining all the flavour and essential wholesomeness of vegetables and meats.

This is a series I would recommend without reservations. Go ahead and enjoy your TV dinner with Nosrat. I give it five stars — or five spoons.
