Samin Nosrat, The Most Infectious Personality in Food

On the Eater Upsell, the author and chef discusses representation and her path to success

On the latest episode of the Eater Upsell podcast, we talk to Samin Nosrat, the New York Times Magazine columnist, author of hit cookbook Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, and star of the just-debuted Netflix show of the same name. Part cooking show, part travelogue, in each episode of the show, Nosrat explores one element of flavor in one chosen country (eg exploring the fats of olive oil, Parmesan, and pork in Italy).

In this Upsell episode, we discuss her path from cooking novice to cookbook author, representation in food media and television, and how she convinced both Alice Waters and Michael Pollan to hire her by writing them letters.
