Presented by Mesa Arts Center as part of the Performing Live series.


Samin Nosrat explains her simple, universal philosophy of Salt, Fat, Acid and Heat in an evening that promises to be an unforgettable journey. She begins with her own realizations, while working in the Chez Panisse kitchen, about how these four elements are common to all good cooking. Having traveled the world exploring the multicultural manifestations of salt, fat, acid, and heat, Samin offers a unique and engaging perspective on themes of diversity, inclusion, and of course, food. Netflix’s newest culinary star will participate in a moderated conversation and audience Q&A.


Samin Nosrat learned to cook at Chez Panisse, in Italy alongside Benedetta Vitali and Dario Cecchini, and at Eccolo in Berkeley. Her first book is the New York Times bestselling, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking. A documentary series based on the book is on Netflix. She is also a food columnist for the New York Times Magazine.


Samin will be joined on stage with chef, restaurant owner, and host of Arizona PBS's Check Please, Mark Tarbell.
