Lovable and approachable are the first things to know about Samin. (She's a friend). The same can be said of her approach to the kitchen, cooking and its culture. Her abundant passion, jovial nature and gifted skills make her a likely teacher, too.
In 2017 when Salt Fat Acid Heat hit the shelves it instantly became a sensation. Samin's honesty, authenticity and impeccable commitment to her craft paired with Wendy MacNaughton's simple, gestural and humorous illustrations made the cookbook feel like a revelation. James Beard awarded the book in the same year.
Distilling recipes down to the absolute basic elements of good cooking and deftly showing us the accessible anatomy therein transforms anyone into an expert kitchen witch.
