  • Samine Nosrat has a warm place in my heart for a very non-culinary reason. Living for a long time in a sophisticated, rather blasé city, I sometimes felt people regarded me with amusement at my “excitable” nature. And began to think that it was a liability. But in her Salt, Fat video Samine happily announced her excitability and obviously had never been held back by it. It was a mini life-changer for me. Having said, that just want to add to the legions, probably, of both men and women who have cooked more now than ever before – and by force, more inventively, because there are less ingredients with which to do so. It’s amazing what can be done with a box of Kraft Mac n’ Cheese. Or the store brand version, more likely.

  • Samin is awesome, I’ve watched her show four times and bought the book. I love her enthusiasm and her desire for great tasting food.

    • Totally agree! Although I’m only halfway through the book, I’m already making changes in the way I season my food.

  • Awww, YES!!!!

  • Samin is *the* cook for these times. I’ve made her amazingly down-home Pasta Tahdig with leftover spaghetti twice since we started staying home, and it has already passed into family legend. Here you go, and you’re welcome:

  • I made my latkes last night after listening to the podcast this week. Never thought of them as quarantine food, but I had 4 very happy people at the dinner table.

  • I watch the Netflix show. I made my husband buy me the cookbook for Christmas. Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will make cooks of everyone. Thanks for the tip on the podcast!

  • ooooh. the enthusiasm is Fantastic. Thank you for sharing

  • I probably would not have come across this podcast on my own, so thank you. I’ve been dying to see Samin’ s Netflix show but we do not subscribe.

  • Thanks Ann. Just what I needed. A little inspiration to change things up in the kitchen. PLUS Recipes that are really “methods”. My favorite way to cook.

  • OMG!! I love Samin. Going to subscribe to the podcast right now 🙂

  • What happened to the ability to save this post with a bookmark???!
