“[Salt Fat Acid Heat] is a celebration of Nosrat’s food ethos, while also being the kindest, gentlest, most warm and welcoming rebuff to food-porn exclusivity.” —New York Magazine
“[Lindy West is] one of the most distinctive voices advancing feminist politics through humor.” —The New York Times Book Review
Samin Nosrat is a food columnist for The New York Times Magazine, author of the bestseller Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking and the star of the Netflix series of the same name. As an undergraduate studying English at UC Berkeley, she took a detour into the kitchen at Chez Panisse and, since 2000, she has pursued her twin passions of food and words with equal vigor, aiming to create work that inspires, creates community and raises cultural, social and environmental awareness. Lindy West is a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times and the author of The New York Times bestselling memoir Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman, which she recently adapted as a half-hour comedy series for Hulu. They will discuss the challenges and experiences of women in the 21st century and, of course, food.
