Watched Salt Fat Acid Heat E1

Watched Fat from

Fat is an episode of Salt Fat Acid Heat starring Samin Nosrat. Samin travels to Italy to explore the importantance of fat in food; including olive oil, dairy fat (in the form of parmesean cheese), and animal fat (pork).

Entertaining – I didn’t learn a lot but her perspectives on fat were interesting – like the weight she puts on choosing which fat to cook with since that’s the foundation of the flavor. She also points out five distinct textures that fat creates. I would have liked a little more of the science behind it but overall enjoyable.

It’s interesting which foods she chooses to highlight fat – pesto makes sense but focaccia isn’t what I’d jump to first in showcasing oil.
