<b>Now a Netflix series!</b><BR> <BR> <b><i>New York Times</i> Bestseller and Winner of the 2018 James Beard Award for Best General Cookbook and multiple ICAP Cookbook Awards </b><BR> <BR> <b>Named </b><b>one of the Best Books of 2017 by: NPR, BuzzFeed, <i>The</i> <i>Atlantic</i>, <i>The </i><i>Washington Post</i>, <i>Chicago Tribune</i>, <i>Rachel Ray Every Day</i>, <i>San Francisco Chronicle</i>, Vice Munchies, Elle.com, <i>Glamour</i>, Eater, <i>Newsday, Minneapolis Star Tribune</i>,<i> The Seattle Times</i>, <i>Tampa Bay Times</i>, Tasting Table, <i>Modern Farmer</i>, <i>Publishers Weekly,</i> and more.</b><BR> <BR> A visionary new master class in cooking that distills decades of professional experience into just four simple elements, from the woman declared “America’s next great cooking teacher” by Alice Waters.<BR><BR>In the tradition of <i>The Joy of Cooking</i> and <i>How to Cook Everything</i> comes <i>Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat</i>, an ambitious new approach to cooking by a major new culinary voice. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat has taught everyone from professional chefs to middle school kids to author Michael Pollan to cook using her revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy. Master the use of just four elements—Salt, which enhances flavor; Fat, which delivers flavor and generates texture; Acid, which balances flavor; and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food—and anything you cook will be delicious. By explaining the hows and whys of good cooking, <i>Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat</i> will teach and inspire a new generation of cooks how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients, anywhere, at any time. <BR> <BR>Echoing Samin’s own journey from culinary novice to award-winning chef, <i>Salt, Fat Acid, Heat</i> immediately bridges the gap between home and professional kitchens. With charming narrative, illustrated walkthroughs, and a lighthearted approach to kitchen science, Samin demystifies the four elements of good cooking for everyone. Refer to the canon of 100 essential recipes—and dozens of variations—to put the lessons into practice and make bright, balanced vinaigrettes, perfectly caramelized roast vegetables, tender braised meats, and light, flaky pastry doughs. <BR> <BR>Featuring 150 illustrations and infographics that reveal an atlas to the world of flavor by renowned illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, <i>Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat</i> will be your compass in the kitchen. Destined to be a classic, it just might be the last cookbook you’ll ever need. <BR> <BR>With a foreword by Michael Pollan.

Since her debut on Food Network in 2002 with the hit program <i>Everyday Italian,</i> Giada De Laurentiis has been enticing Americans with her updated twists on Italian favorites. Her dedication to ease, healthfulness, and—above all else—flavor have won her a permanent place in the hearts of home cooks. In <i>Giada at Home,</i> she shares a personal look into how she cooks for those dearest to her, with simple recipes inspired by her television show of the same name.<br /> <br />Born in Italy, Giada was raised in Los Angeles by a gregarious Italian family. While her grandmother, aunt, and mother brought her up on generations-old recipes, Giada also became enamored with the bright and clean flavors of California’s abundant seasonal fruits and vegetables. <i>Giada at Home</i> presents recipes from both traditions, all with Giada’s signature style. She shares classic Italian recipes passed down through the years, like cheese-stuffed dates wrapped in salty prosciutto, creamy risotto with the earthy and deep flavors of mushrooms and gorgonzola, and lamb chops basted with honey and balsamic vinegar. New family favorites include grilled asparagus and melon, game hens roasted with citrus and herbs, and a sorbet made with pomegranate and mint, all bursting with fresh, vibrant flavors.<br /> <br />No meal would be complete without the company of family and Giada particularly enjoys bringing her loved ones together over meals. For the first time, she incorporates her go-to brunch recipes—what she cooks when setting up a feast on her back patio for everyone on weekend mornings—from Jade-approved Panini, with gooey mozzarella, luscious raspberries, and a sprinkling of brown sugar, to Todd’s favorite pancetta-studded waffles scented with cinnamon. <br /> <br />No matter which recipe you choose—classic or contemporary—<i>Giada at Home</i> makes gathering the favorite people in your life for fabulous weeknight meals and family celebrations delicious and easy.<br /> <br /> <br />GIADA DE LAURENTIIS is the Emmy-winning star of Food Network’s <i>Everyday Italian, Giada's Weekend Getaways, </i>and<i> Giada at Home; </i>a contributing correspondent for NBC’s <i>Today</i>; and the author of four <i>New York Times</i> bestselling cookbooks. She attended the Cordon Bleu in Paris and worked at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant in Los Angeles before starting her own catering company, GDL Foods. Born in Rome, she grew up in Los Angeles, where she now lives with her husband, Todd, and their daughter, Jade.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
