Salt Fat Acid Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking

2018 James Beard Award: Best General Cookbook


With great illustrations, and written by a chef, writer and teacher, this book provides clear guides to why and how certain techniques and food combinations just work!

In the tradition of The Joy of Cooking and How to Cook Everything comes Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, an ambitious new approach to cooking by a major new culinary voice. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat has taught everyone from professional chefs to middle school kids to author Michael Pollan to cook using her revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy.

Master the use of just four elements—

Salt, which enhances flavor;

Fat, which delivers flavor and generates texture;

Acid, which balances flavor;

and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food—and anything you cook will be delicious.


By explaining the hows and whys of good cooking, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will teach and inspire a new generation of cooks how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients, anywhere, at any time. 

Samin demystifies the four elements of good cooking for everyone. Refer to the canon of 100 essential recipes—and dozens of variations—to put the lessons into practice and make bright, balanced vinaigrettes, perfectly caramelized roast vegetables, tender braised meats, and light, flaky pastry doughs. 

In the book, and on Netflix, Samin shares her favorites, many of which we carry: Taggiasca olive oil, Capezzana olive oil, Colatura di Alici, good sea salt -- and so much more!

Featuring 150 illustrations and infographics that reveal an atlas to the world of flavor by renowned illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will be your compass in the kitchen. Destined to be a classic, it just might be the last cookbook you’ll ever need. 

With a foreword by Michael Pollan.
