Move over, Chef's Table—Netflix users have a new favorite culinary show. Chef Samin Nosrat, author of the James Beard Award-winning cookbook Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, is hosting a new food and travel series with the same moniker.

Her cookbook famously eschews a few of the genre's conventions (illustrations are used instead of pictures throughout, for example) while still helping the reader achieve impeccable dishes. The series follows suit: Nosrat manages to make the famously snobby world of Michelin-starred chefs seem approachable, while still introducing her audience to elite and rarified cuisine.

From the start, Nosrat knew she wanted the show to do something unique for her audience. As she recently told Eater, "Right now, the reason I cook and the reason I care about this as a line of work is that it’s kind of like the lowest-hanging fruit in terms of [being] the tool for a storyteller; to tell universal stories, connect people from diverse backgrounds, increase curiosity, and teach you about the world."

Will 'Salt Fat Acid Heat' be your new favorite food show on Netflix?

Yes! I can't wait to follow Nosrat around the world.

No, I'm still devoted to 'Chef's Table' and 'Cooked.'

The show began to come together in the wake of the 2016 election, which prompted Nosrat, an Iranian-American, to think even more about what it would mean for her to host a television series. "What I wouldn’t have given as a little kid in San Diego to have seen someone like me on TV!" she said. "In second grade, I was called a terrorist. My whole life has been this. So if I can mean that for somebody else — for another little kid, or not even a little kid — then that’s what I wanted to do."

'Salt Fat Acid Heat' is streaming now on Netflix. Peep the trailer below for a taste.
