I know it is going to be the best book ever when it shows up in multiple ways!
The title caught my attention first as some alert flying across my the top of my computer screen – wonder what new nutritional fad this book is promoting? Is it taking Mark Hyman’s book about fat a step further by adding salt, acid, heat? But, too busy to investigate now.
While searching for food illustrators, Wendy MacNaughton came up in my search. And, there is was again, the cover of Salt Fat Acid Heat. But, on a focused mission, I didn’t stop to investigate.
Next,I was researching knife skills and illustrations. Once again, the cover popped up.
Third Time’s a Charm
When things come in 3’s, seems to be an indicator that it’s trying to get my attention!
I bought the book without hesitation.
Salt Fat Acid Heat – Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking
by Samin Nosrat and art by Wendy MacNaughton
Foreword by Michael Pollan and Quote by Alice Waters
This is the book I didn’t know I was looking for… but exactly what I was searching for. The perfect combination – an illustrated book, with a well written story that teaches cooking skills and has a collection of recipes. Love it!
At this point in time, I have scanned from cover to cover, read a few pages and glanced at the recipes.
I came across a very thick page. Hum? To my surprise it was a fold out page. On this page, in the upper right hand corner, it says, “okay, I Get It, but this book is really about the journey, not the destination. So, maybe stop trying to skip ahead in life, and head back to the beginning.”
So, here I go, back to the beginning and will begin the journey. Excited to see where it takes me… in the kitchen and in by drawing.
Would love it if you would join me!
