Samin Nosrat (Persian: ثمین نصرت, /səˈmin ˈnʌsrɑːt/, born November 7, 1979) is an American chef, TV host, food writer and podcaster.]
She is the author of the James Beard Award–winning, New York Times Bestselling cookbook Salt Fat Acid Heat and host of a Netflix docu-series of the same name. From 2017–2021, she was a food columnist for The New York Times Magazine. Nosrat is also the co-host of the podcast Home Cooking.
In 2000, as a sophomore in college, Nosrat ate dinner at Chez Panisse and immediately applied to work there as a busser. She eventually worked her way up to the restaurant kitchen, becoming a cook and working with Alice Waters, who described her as “America’s next great cooking teacher.”
After leaving Chez Panisse, Nosrat worked in Italy and then other Berkeley-area restaurants. She worked as a sous-chef and took catering jobs before starting to teach private cooking classes in 2007. She has said that she soon felt that a television show would be a more efficient way of teaching; however, it would be years before that would happen.
