Only Samin Nosrat can turn a cookbook with no photos into a hit Netflix show and a U.S. tour.

Nosrat first gained fame in the food world when Michael Pollan featured her prominently in his 2013 book, “Cooked,” but it wasn’t until her cookbook, “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” came out in 2017 that Nosrat became a household name. (Well, in foodie households, that is.)

The book won numerous awards and inspired a four-part Netflix show of the same name, and now she’s in the middle of a national tour that will swing through Austin in June. She’ll give a talk at the Long Center at 7:30 p.m. on June 11. Tickets start at $29, and you can find them at

The funny, savvy and multi-lingual Samin, a current columnist for the New York Times Magazine, was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2019. She announced last year that her next book will be “What to Cook,” but fans are still awaiting news of a publication date.
