“Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” the admirable and affably advantageous and advisory cookbook accounting by James Beard award-winning, New York Times aliment biographer Samin Nosrat has aloof been acclimatized into a four-part Netflix alternation by the aforementioned name. Nosrat, the brilliant of the new aliment series, and the show’s director, the documentarian Caroline Suh sat bottomward with me to allocution about the authoritative of the alone aliment adventitious alternation led by a woman.
Both the appearance and the book are directed at the home baker and are committed to breaking abroad from the abject adherence to the accounting recipe, rather Nosrat, who formed in the kitchen at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, insists that in adjustment to baker able-bodied all you charge to do is blend the right bulk of salt, fat and acerbic to a bowl and afresh administer the actual bulk of heat. All that’s appropriate to do that is a bright compassionate of how these four elements effect food.
There is not a distinct compound in the book until afterwards folio 199, and there isn’t one academic compound in any of the four episodes of the show. “I acclimated to be such a compound follower. I’d say, oh, I don’t accept crème fraiche, I can’t accomplish this. Or abroad I accept to run out and go get crème fraiche. I would be such a stickler for afterward the rules” says Suh. “And now, because of alive on this activity and account the book, I’m free. It’s so abundant added adequate to baker that way.”
Each adventitious of “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” takes the eyewitness on a adventitious in afterward of an compassionate of one of these categories. Alkali is addressed in Japan, fat in Italy and acerbic (primarily in the anatomy of citrus) takes the admirers to Mexico. Calefaction is addressed in the final adventitious and brings the admirers into Nosrat’s home in Berkeley. It is a actual acceptable accession to the growing assize of aberrant aliment shows.
The afterward is a archetype of our conversation.
The appearance is based on Nosrat’s award-winning cookbook “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat.” So, I aloof accomplished binge-watching this, like all acceptable Netflix products, and I am so aflame to allocution to you guys about this show.
Samin Nosrat: I’m so aflame you admired it. It’s alone been up for, not alike 24 hours.
I anticipate I was the aboriginal through the aperture … Bodies were afterward me in the door. I was there so quick. I admired it from the minute it started.
Caroline Suh: Really? That’s good.
Yeah. The music was amazing. And the locations are fantastic. And the characters. And you’re-
Samin Nosrat: Okay.
Headlining the show you are aloof amazing. You do such a abundant job of bringing bodies into this affair and authoritative bodies feel adequate and teaching them things. I’m a array of ambitious, advancing home baker and I apprehension I would apperceive aggregate that was actuality imparted by you, delightfully. And I abstruse a lot of things.
Samin Nosrat: That’s so amazing to hear. Acknowledge you.
So I appetite to apperceive how you chose the locations and the capacity and the characters that you chose. Maybe we alpha with Japan and one aliment antecedent that I didn’t apperceive was a big allotment of the Japanese culture, was, salt.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah. It all was affectionate of a cast that we had to bulk out calm because we fabricated the appearance array of appealing rapidly, all in a row. You apperceive what I mean? It was like a Admirable Apperception moment with one actor addle pieces that were consistently moving. So, Japan didn’t appear in a vacuum, ’cause for a while we were gonna go to Italy for salt.
It all had to do with seasonality and availability and who we could find. But aback the alpha I had such a able activity that Japan would be such an amazing abode to visit, to analyze the aspect of salt, because in Japanese affable there’s so abounding altered kinds of alkali acclimated on a circadian basis: soy sauce, miso, pickles, and additionally salt.
Which also, I accede with you, I didn’t apperceive that there was a abundant attitude of salt-making in Japan, either.
Four thousand varieties?
Samin Nosrat: Yeah. Isn’t that crazy? It was bananas.
Caroline Suh: You can aloof set up a business by siphoning baptize from the sea and afresh dehydration it.
And binding out seaweed. Right?
Samin Nosrat: Yes.
Caroline Suh: Yup.
Samin Nosrat: It was absolutely arresting there. And I anticipate they had told us that the government had deregulated, actually, the salt-making industry in the last, I think, maybe 10 or 15 years. And so because of that all of these little artisanal alkali makers accept popped up, aloof a one-man show, two-man show.
So we absolutely got to accommodated this amazing actuality who . . . he does absolutely that. He siphons baptize out of a bay at aerial advance and afresh runs it through this array of filtration-evaporation action to get the baptize appealing concentrated. And afresh he takes it to his home area he has this basically wood-powered bath, area he evaporates it a additional time. And actual anxiously creates these flakes, these best delicate, light-as-snow flakes of salt. He’s the bedmate of the woman who accomplished me how to accomplish miso.
Samin Nosrat: It’s a actual in-the-family . . . Already we were led to one actuality afresh that would advance us to the aing person. So, generally it started with a affiliation that I had but sometimes we concluded up with characters that we could accept never absurd finding.
Right. And the ex-patriot that was in the alkali episode. She was a home cook, right?
Samin Nosrat: Mm-hmm (affirmative)
That was addition abundant touch, was that you begin bodies who were . . . You absolutely acclimated professionals but you additionally looked to home cooks to advice you.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah. I anticipate for me I am actual abundant a best of home affable and home cooks. And there are so abounding aliment shows, absolutely admirable ones, that abide to annoyance able affable and able chefs. But there aren’t that abounding that absolutely bless home cooking, or are for home cooks especially. And I capital to do that both with the content, with the characters, at every level.
Samin Nosrat: And Caroline was a absolutely acceptable force because sometimes I would blooper into able mindset and she’d be like, “Is that absolutely what addition would do at home?” And so, you were befitting me real, for sure, abnormally aback I started charwoman added peoples’ houses.
Caroline Suh: One of Samin’s best able letters is that anyone can apprentice how to cook. So we didn’t appetite to go to these places area they had sous vide machines and crazy tools. We capital to absolutely appearance that about the apple anybody affectionate of cooks the aforementioned way.
Yeah. I absolutely noticed it in the episodes ’cause like all the Netflix articles you accept to watch the accomplished affair in adjustment to absolutely get it. Aback you did get a little abstruse in agreement of the food, the alkali is what I’m cerebration of, the miso, was that you alternate it so able-bodied aback into a home affable experience, with somebody who had no home-
Caroline Suh: She knows nothing.
At all about food. Admitting lovely, of course. And I apprehension that was abundant ascendancy of a aliment show’s message. Article you don’t generally see. The allurement to move into the abstruse and appearance off a little bit is ample on aliment shows. And you guys absolutely had abundant discipline.
Caroline Suh: We capital it to be abiding in Samin’s bulletin and in approved kitchens, so . . .
Yeah. It was actual able-bodied done. And characters in the . . . beautiful locations in Italy and in Japan, but characters as well.
Samin Nosrat: Absolutely.
And adventures. The adventitious that’s about fat is abundant because it’s about beastly fat and vegetable fat in the anatomy of olive oil and additionally dairy fat. But you get the pig disassembling scenes and they’re great, and they’re beautifully shot. What’s the abstruse chat for aback you shoot aloft the table?
Caroline Suh: You can alarm it tabletop.
Tabletop, okay. The cut to the disassembled pig and afresh the descriptions of the genitalia and their uses; and additionally choices that you accept to make.When you’re demography afar one pig you don’t get to do aggregate that you want. I’d adulation it if you’d allocution about . . .
Samin Nosrat: Sure. Lorenzo the who absolutely arrive us into his boutique and assimilate his farm, he was so amorous about these animals. He had, I think, aback the 1800s or 1600s, his ancestors has aloft this array of pig. And he’s, I don’t know, eighth bearing butcher. It’s incredible, the history for him.
For him there is . . . He thinks about that attitude every time he makes a accommodation that is about cutting. So, if you’re gonna accomplish the best to . . . If you appetite to accomplish banquet out of your pork, right, you’re gonna cut it a altered way than if you appetite to bottle all of the fat on there so that you can cure it and about-face it into prosciutto or a allotment of pancetta or lardo.
So there are altered decisions that you accomplish based on what it is that you’re ultimate ambition is, which I anticipate is reflected throughout all cooking. And my ambition as a abecedary is to advice you accept how to accomplish those decisions.
Caroline Suh: They are like little revelations. I mean, aback we were filming with the pigs Samin said, and Lorenzo said, “Oh, the legs get the best assignment because they’re walking about all the time.” And so they are the best able-bodied and accept the atomic fat. Whereas the abdomen has the best fat.
I’m a big home baker but I didn’t know . . . I’d never apprehension about meat in agreement of animals and their bodies in the aforementioned way.
That’s great. And there’s so abundant assignment complex aback you set about demography apart-
Caroline Suh: They did it appealing quickly.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah. I mean, he’s a adept and he does it every day and so it was absolutely beautiful. It was actual about symphonic watching him. He was able to do it in the atomic bulk of cuts. And that’s one of the things I absolutely adulation about European-style butchery, is that it’s not about the hacksaw and electric saws and stuff, that aloof cut array of accidental down. It’s so abundant added about the balladry of actuality accustomed with the joints and with the basal and actuality able to chase that so you get the best yield. And it’s abundant added array of a accustomed way of butchery.
So alike that moment aback the bisected of the pig is blind and he sticks his knife in there to aloof detach the prosciutto and it comes off, that is such a adept move and I adulation that we were able to abduction that.
Yeah. It was beautiful. And the knife is added the admeasurement of a pen.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah, it’s not about a huge knife at all. It’s about alive how to use it.
Caroline Suh: And it’s not about an big-ticket knife or-
Samin Nosrat: No, his dad was basically this little elf, it was so adorable, who, at one point I took out my own knife cycle – and I don’t accept the best adorned or big-ticket knives but I anticipate to him they appeared to be absolutely adorned – and he was like, “Listen, it’s not about the admeasurement of your knife. It’s not about the amount of your knife. It’s about how you use it.” And I said, “Yes, I agree, I know.”
You mentioned pickles in the first, aback we were talking aloof now about salt. But one of the things that I admired so abundant about the appearance is that it was all actual intertwined. Because pickles appearance up afresh in the third-
Samin Nosrat: In acid, yeah.
In acid, which is addition abundant analysis of the subject. And also, not the aboriginal area I would go to to allocution about acid . . . I don’t apperceive absolutely what the aboriginal area is, but I was absolutely abundantly afraid to acquisition this accomplished added admission point to Mexico.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah, well, we absolutely about went to Iran, area my family’s from, because the palette of our affable is so acidic. And we use so abounding absolutely acerb capacity in Persian cooking: pomegranate, molasses, acerb oranges, so abounding acerb yogurts and cheeses and things. And I absolutely capital to analyze that. And at the aftermost minute it aloof didn’t accomplish faculty for us to go there, so we had to about-face gears. And we were like, “Where should we go?”
And, I am from San Diego, I grew up bistro Mexican food, and in my apperception that had consistently been the aing abode in band to go to analyze acid. But, you know, there are a lot of logistical affidavit why we accomplish decisions; and Netflix had aloof put out a brace of shows that had episodes in Mexico City and so they said “you can’t go there, you accept to bulk out area abroad to go.”
Samin Nosrat: And we did a little appointment and begin out that the acerb oranges, the aforementioned ones that we were gonna appointment and abstraction in Iran, through the aroma trades had fabricated their way to Mexico, to the Yucatan, and were this basal additive in Yucatacan cuisine. And so it was this affectionate of admirable balladry that we got to appointment this aforementioned additive in a absolutely altered place.
Did they appear through the aroma avenue through Spain?
Samin Nosrat: I anticipate through India, yeah, through the Moors to Spain and afresh to Mexico, yeah. It’s the Seville orange is what it’s alleged a lot in English so yes, through Spain.
Okay. You guys formed calm from the alpha to put this appearance together?
Caroline Suh: Yeah, well, we had a aggregation of producers who were amazing and abundant and we all formed together. We advised Samin’s book and thought, okay, how do we about-face what is about a cookbook – I mean, it’s added than a cookbook but it is a cookbook – and about-face it into stories, and braid them together. And also, it is so layered, because a lot of the capacity are acrid and acidic. So how do we distill her best basal and advantageous acquaint and about-face it into a TV show?
Caroline Suh: So, it was a accomplished aggregation of bodies who did that, and it was actual fun. And it is like a matrix. You’re aggravating to . . . Because you appetite the alternation to be assorted enough. We also, you know, Europe, we watch so abundant aliment TV and there’s a lot of actuality about Europe, which is great, but we affectionate of capital to go with bodies who weren’t the accepted suspects.
So you did lots of analysis in apprehension of this.
Caroline Suh: Yes.
What were some of the goals? You watched all that aliment television and of advance you admired all of it but there were some things that you chose not to do. What were you attractive to do . . . Being honest to the book, what were you attractive to do abnormally than had been done.
Caroline Suh: I anticipate we capital it to be . . . I mean, there’s a lot of aliment television which is acutely admirable but we capital to be abundantly beautiful. And my accomplishments isn’t in food; I’m a documentary filmmaker. So I affectionate of brought that bend to it, as a lay actuality not a aliment person, I imagined, what would I get out of this, watching this.
And additionally it’s absolutely bringing . . . Samin is a actual abnormal character, in admirable ways, in admirable ways. And we capital to accompany her spirit to life. That’s why … I mean, Netflix fell in adulation with her aback they met her. Jigsaw, the assembly company, fell in adulation with her. So we capital to booty that affectionate of activity that she has and accompany it to the screen. Because you don’t see that abounding women who are out there agriculture seaweed and-
Yeah, and that was one of the things I was analytical about was that to accept a woman active the adventitious is a abundant a acceptable change.
Samin Nosrat: This was absolutely a lady-run project. Yeah. It was not by mistake. It was absolutely intentional, both abaft the camera and in advanced of the camera, the choices that we fabricated to accomplish article that’s different. I anticipate there is a lot of abundant aliment TV out there but a lot of it’s the same. So to me I thought, well, this is my one shot, maybe I’ll never accept addition adventitious to do this. So what am I gonna do with this? I appetite to account home cooks. And who are home cooks? They’re about consistently women.
And those bodies don’t absolutely anytime get any credit. Those bodies don’t anytime get to be apparent on TV in accurate beauty, you know? I mean, Caroline, I don’t apperceive if you’ve consistently been bedeviled with this or if you were aloof during aback we were authoritative it, but “I Am Love,” the Luca Guadagnino cine – is that how you say his name?
Caroline Suh: I don’t anticipate so but I can’t actual you.
Samin Nosrat: Forgive me, okay. But it was this beautiful . . . It’s the aforementioned administrator who fabricated “Call Me By Your Name” and it’s the array of admirable Northern Italian adulation letter to Italy. And I anticipate that was a big afflatus for you in authoritative this adventitious that’s a adulation letter to my Italy, to the Italy that I got to alive in. And so things like that that would’ve never occurred to me, that’s the affectionate of actuality that Caroline brought to it, was this array of beyond accurate vision. These inspirations. It was absolutely cool.
I was actual aflame to see you speaking added languages.
Samin Nosrat: It was agitative to get to.
It was a big allotment of it, is to not cycle in and use English as the aboriginal adjustment of communication, to absolutely allege the accent – or try, you know?
Samin Nosrat: Japan, I was absolutely limited.
Caroline Suh: There was a lot of animated and nodding.
I anticipate that that affectionate of acuteness to activity into a bearings and not demography it over is a actual positive-
Samin Nosrat: Yeah, I mean, that’s additionally aloof who I’ve been my accomplished life, is a actuality who block into situations and communities and does my best to fit in and accomplish bodies feel comfortable. So in a way that’s a accomplishment that I’ve been honing my accomplished absolute life.
And I didn’t absolutely alike apprehend how advantageous it would be until we were accomplishing it. And I realized, oh, I appear to be absolutely adequate in advanced of the camera but there are a lot of things I’m acquirements about. I’m acquirements that there’s all these bodies affective aback there and it’s my job to avoid them. Or we accept to stop and do things assorted times, and it ability feel like I fabricated a aberration but I didn’t absolutely accomplish a mistake. We’re accomplishing it assorted times because they charge a altered angle. Or maybe I did accomplish a mistake. But that’s okay.
And so already I got a adhere of that afterwards a few days, I accomplished it was afresh my job to explain that to everybody who I came in acquaintance with because absolutely those bodies had never done it, either. And in adjustment for them to be their best adequate with me and advice accomplish the best television, I capital to explain that so they could be at ease. You know, don’t anguish aback we accept to do it 20 times; it’s not your fault; it’s okay; it’s aloof allotment of the process.
Caroline Suh: We apperceive how afflictive it is actuality in advanced of a camera. I mean, I consistently am actual compassionate whenever I accept to do annihilation like this because-
So aback you went aback to San Francisco, I accept one arguable catechism to ask you.
Samin Nosrat: Oh, yeah. Do.
When you chose the grocery abundance to use as the set or the accomplishments for your pro tips for shopping, why didn’t you accept the co-op?
Samin Nosrat: We don’t accept a address in Berkeley. I alive in Berkeley.
You couldn’t go beyond the bay to Oakland and go to the Oakland co-op?
Samin Nosrat: No, I alive in Berkeley area the big grocery abundance in the east bay is Berkeley Bowl. And so the big address in San Francisco is Rainbow,
Samin Nosrat: But Berkeley Bowl has so abundant added produce. But the affair I adulation about that abundance – and I had to argue these guys that it wasn’t too fancy — is that Berkeley Bowl aloof affectionate of has some of everything. So yes, you get your, like, amoebic whatever. But afresh they additionally accept Best Foods mayonnaise. And so it’s the accomplished spectrum of options are available.
And I know, abnormally in the winter in, like, Minnesota, you’re not see that array of produce. But we additionally chose to allocution about broccoli and cauliflower and carrots and brussels sprouts, instead of all of the antique varieties of things, for a reason. So every best that I fabricated about what to baker and what to allocution about was absolutely with an abstraction of how will this ability and acreage with the greatest cardinal of people, and absolutely allege to them.
Caroline Suh: The aftermost adventitious is meant to accompany all of these acquaint and all of the biking aback home, and say, okay, how do you absolutely cook? Aback you’re in the United States, how do you absolutely baker aback you’re faced with choices in a bazaar and-
Right. And, absorbing affair about that is that really, aback we allocution about American cuisine we don’t accept a cuisine so abundant as we are a nation of immigrants and we aces and accept our altered capacity and our themes-
Samin Nosrat: Based on heritage. Totally.
And that was a abundant affair to be able to go out into the apple and afresh appear aback and accomplish abbreviate ribs.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah, and administer it to, like, rice.
Samin Nosrat: Chicken, vegetables, salad. Yeah. Absolutely.
It was actual acceptable that if you were somebody who’s ablution themselves on the activity of absolutely accepting austere about cooking, or acceptable analytical about cooking, that this appearance would be one that . . . you’d see the possible, you know, and be aflame about the alien edges of . . .
Caroline Suh: I mean, aloof for me, if I . . . I acclimated to be such a compound follower. I’d say, oh, I don’t accept crème fraiche, I can’t accomplish this. Or abroad I accept to run out and go get crème fraiche. I would be such a stickler for afterward the rules. And now, because of alive on this activity and account the book, I’m free. It’s so abundant added adequate to baker that way.
You accept to get 199 pages into that book afore you say now you’re accessible to cook. And afresh there are recipes. It’s acutely a actual advised thing. And it’s reflected in the show. There are no recipes in the show. There’s no acknowledgment of measurements.
Caroline Suh: And that was intentional.
Yeah, and it’s a abundant way of . . . In the book I anticipate that you allocution about – I don’t bethink which chef you acclaim with this — but that a compound is array of a starting place.
Samin Nosrat: Mm-hmm (affirmative)
And that it should be acclimated as a photograph, you know.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah.
And that you accept to be present in the action and apperceive that chile is the aforementioned as bouillon and that that affectionate of alertness is afresh in cuisines beyond the apple and you aloof accept to get with it in agreement of what ingredients.
Samin Nosrat: I consistently antic that there’s alone seven recipes in the world. Like, there’s alone seven agency of affable things, and everywhere you go there’s aloof variations of those things.
Caroline Suh: What are they, though?
Samin Nosrat: I don’t know.
Caroline Suh: So that’s your aing book.
There’s a sandwich, right? There’s a sandwich everywhere. There’s a sauce.
Caroline Suh: Moo shu pork carve burrito. Like, a burrito.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah.
Caroline Suh: That’s your aing book.
Samin Nosrat: Okay, got it.
The Seven Things. I anticipate that that should abundance bodies and accord bodies confidence, that really, you’re aloof gonna accomplish a affair that everybody’s consistently been authoritative the accomplished time. And what you’re gonna aloof do is be present.
I accept bodies in my activity who absolutely are, aback they put . . . like you were talking about . . . when you put the compound bottomward you’re like, okay, do I accept aggregate I need? And in truth, salt, fat, acid, heat. Yeah.
Caroline Suh: It’s added burden bodies don’t charge aback they get home and they’re beat and they’ve aloof formed a continued day, to accept to feel like you accept to do article perfectly.
The aliment industry is congenital up around . . . is aspirational. I anticipate it became aspirational ten years ago.
Samin Nosrat: Certainly over the advance of my affable career, perfectionism in cooking, in the angel of the comestible world, has absolutely proliferated. And the abstraction that banquet needs to be some altogether argent affair with two vegetables and a meat. The banquet can’t aloof be a bowl of accolade eggs and toast. I anticipate our abstraction of what it agency to baker at home has gotten a lot added complicated and my ambition is to abridge it again.
And so for me, with the show, all I achievement for is that it inspires bodies to cook, to feel like they can do it. My acquaintance told me recently, she said, “Oh, at the end of adventitious four, I had a tray of cauliflower in the oven afore the appearance was over.”
Where is that cauliflower? I anticipate it was headed that administration anyway, but Instagram absolutely accelerated that process, that this is article that you charge to be able to authenticate to strangers that you’re able-
Caroline Suh: Proficient.
Or your aing and dearest. Can we allocution about accoutrement a little bit? ‘Cause that was one of the capacity through the . . . and actually, you didn’t absolutely hit this agenda too hard, and that was notable. Bodies usually allocution about the knife that they can’t alive without, and that wasn’t the case. But you had a adhesive and a abrade in three of the four, I think.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah. I anticipate maybe all of them.
It was arresting for me because I use a lot of accoutrement but I never use the adhesive and pestle.
Samin Nosrat: It’s aloof a abundant attribute for me of application your easily and alive with your hands, and the ability of that. And so, I don’t accept that you charge annihilation special. And actually, throughout the making . . . you know, like I said in the aboriginal episode, I brought my knives to Italy. And afterwards that I aloof larboard them at home and we acclimated whatever bodies had.
Because it wasn’t about that appropriate tool. It was about Dona Conchi’s burst old blender, and whatever. ‘Cause you don’t charge the adorned actuality to accomplish article good. And if I was assuming up with my adorned Microplane grater in the rural Yucatan, it wasn’t necessarily accurate to the message.
Did you biking with the adhesive and pestle?
Samin Nosrat: I aggregate several in Italy and beatific them home with Netflix.
In their adept pouch.
Samin Nosrat: Yeah.
I’ve got one in the chiffonier and I’m gonna annoyance it out, I think, and try to use it a little added regularly. But the blender absolutely does for me what the . . . Another one of the abundant things about the acerbic adventitious was the salsa. What’s the adventure abaft the salsa?
Samin Nosrat: It was aloof absolutely spicy. As I said, you accept to do things assorted times aback you’re shooting. And so I array of was accepting a meta acquaintance of bistro the spiciest affair that I’d anytime eaten and accepting tears appear up, while alive that I would accept to do it abounding added times for the camera.
Caroline Suh: I anticipate you alone did it already because you affected your eye, which afresh became inflamed.
Samin Nosrat: Oh, that’s right.
Caroline Suh: She was not acting. This was serious.
Well, listen, acknowledge you so abundant for aing us actuality today, both of you. The appearance is apprenticed to be a huge success ’cause I’ve already anesthetized it on to three bodies and-
Samin Nosrat: Thank you so much-
Caroline Suh: For watching.
Yeah. Acknowledge you.
Samin Nosrat: Thank you for accepting us. Absolutely delightful.
