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.

With a lighthearted approach to kitchen science, Samin demystifies the four elements of good cooking for everyone.
