At Walden Lane Gourmet, we pride ourselves on being the home of the "un-recipe", and if there is a book that can help you master the art of un-recipe cooking, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is the one. Less of a traditional cookbook, it excels at teaching the reader how to combine specific flavors in ways that enhance the food you eat everyday. It provides the tools and techniques for you to create your own recipes, or at least gives you the confidence to learn how to substitute ingredients that are within the same flavor profile. And with its whimsical illustrations and unpretentious prose, you will have it read cover to cover before you know it. To complement this cookbook, we have curated a collection of WLG items that hit each of the four featured elements of salt, fat, acid, and heat.
This set includes Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat, WLG Premium - Pink Pyramid Sea Salt, WLG Pantry - Smoldering Garlic Blend, WLG Premium - Full-Bodied & Robust Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Stackable Sidekick Bottle) and Honey Vinegar & Serrano (Stackable Sidekick Bottle).
