Samin Nosrat hopes Netflix's Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat opens the door to more "non-traditional-looking television personalities"
The celebrity chef's new four-part docuseries, based on her bestselling cookbook, "is neither an instructional cooking show or a travel show, but a sort of organic ratatouille of the two," says Pat Saperstein. Through her journeys, Nosrat's show explains how the elements of salt, fat, acid and heat "interact to create great food, but not in the style of a conventional stagey cooking show." Nosrat says her Netflix series offered the chance to bring somebody who looks different on food television: "I felt very much like this is my shot. Although I grew up watching a lot of television, I haven’t seen anyone who looks like me in the past...A big part of the reason I did the show was the opportunity to be a person on screen who people don’t necessarily get to see. I hope it will open the door for other people who haven’t been seen — people who are non-traditional-looking television personalities. What’s amazing about their being more platforms is that there’s also more room for more stories." ALSO: Just as Julia Child introduced America to French cooking, Nosrat is poised to teach America about the rest of the culinary landscape.
