A food travel show hosted by chef Samin Nosrat, where in each episode it concentrates on one of the cooking elements salt, fat, acid & heat.
During the episode, Samin travels the world to find out how different approaches to the certain element have been adopted by specific food producers to create unique items.
As Samin talks with the producers to find out how their approach is different, and looks into how the usually generational technique was developed. She joins in with the creation of the food, highlighting the differences that help make the food taste different. Before wrapping up the programme by creating meal utilising the food she has sampled over the episode.
For a food based travel show it’s a pretty relaxing bit of viewing, where it’s more about the interaction of Samin with the folks she’s chatting to than solely concentrating of the food. Making it a pleasant enough way to burn 45 minutes.
