Question: Where can I get the yellow pot that Samin uses in Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat? I need it!


Samin Nosrat is a Berkeley-based chef and writer who wrote a cookbook last year called Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, in which she broke down each of these four essential elements of cooking. The book was a hit, and won a James Beard Award, and it was developed into a four-part mini-series on Netflix. The show is part travelogue, in the cinematic style of Chef’s Table, and part actually useful cooking show, with echos of Julia Child and Alton Brown. And though I drooled over the travel footage from Japan and Mexico and even Berkeley, the scenes of Nosrat in the kitchen are, to me, the heart of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat because they’re the moments when basic knowledge of ingredients, learned in these far-off places, becomes handy technique that anyone can use in their own kitchens.
