As an undergraduate studying English at UC Berkeley, Samin Nosrat took a detour into the kitchen at Chez Panisse restaurant that happily determined the course of her life and career. Since 2000, she has pursued her twin passions of food and words with equal vigor, aiming to create work that inspires, creates community, and raises cultural, social and environmental awareness. And now, we welcome her to Austin!
Her book, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking was illustrated by Wendy MacNaughton, and is a New York Times bestseller and has won countless other awards. A documentary series based on the book is now streaming on Netflix. Samin is one of five food columnists for the New York Times Magazine, and was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2019.
Samin has spoken about food, art, culture and cooking at various venues, and is currently working on her next book titled What to Cook.View Map
