My Notes from Salt Fat Acid Heat

I’m an intuitive cook, improvising on recipes freely when I use them at all. That’s why Salt Fat Acid Heat is the perfect cookbook for me.

It’s an exploration of the underlying principles of good cooking, explaining the science behind how ingredients behave and the why behind the norms of cuisine. The information is presented in an accessible and engaging way, so the knowledge can be internalised and applied freely. It empowers with knowledge rather than dictating by rote.
