Samin Nosrat’s Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is now a best-selling, James Beard award-winning cookbook, also turned Netflix series. Dive into Samin’s creative process as she was still writing the book back in 2015: her inspirations, doubts, collaborations, and hopes for writing something timeless. Plus, Samin shares more on what culinary stardom doesn’t tell us, and how we can reclaim cooking at home, judgment free.
Chewing the Fat is a podcast from the Yale Sustainable Food Program. We cover people making change in the complex world of food and agriculture. We’re home to brilliant minds: activists, academics, chefs, entrepreneurs, farmers, journalists, policymakers, and scientists (to name a few!). Taken together, their work represents a reimagining of mainstream food movements, challenging myths and tropes as well as inspiring new ways of collaborating.
The podcast is an aural accompaniment to our on-campus Chewing the Fat speaker series, aiming to broaden our content beyond New Haven. Episodes are released every two weeks, featuring interviews, storytelling and more.
On the farm, in the classroom, and around the world, the Yale Sustainable Food Program (YSFP) grows food-literate leaders. We create opportunities for students to experience food, agriculture, and sustainability as integral parts of their education and everyday lives.
