Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking

Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking, by Samin Nosrat, illustrated by Wendy Macnaughton

Most cookbooks give you recipes, this contemporary classic teaches you how to cook. Or, really, how to taste. This beautiful book goes over the four elements of good cooking, and you will never be the same. There are recipes in here for you to try (the buttermilk chicken is out-of-this-world delicious), but what you’ll really come away with is a better understanding of what makes good food good. If you don’t already have it, get it!
