Samin Nosrat, the bubbly chef, New York Times columnist, and author of “Salt Fat Acid Heat” (hit cookbook turned TV series) has launched a new limited-run quarantine cooking podcast. With Netflix watch queues across American drying up, her timing couldn’t be better.
Home Cooking,” features quarantine-specific cooking questions, stories, and anxieties (wait, what’s anxiety?) sent in from fans and listeners. There are currently four episodes set to run, with each loosely revolving around an ingredient theme—the first one being all about Each installment of the new podcast, entitled “beans. Questions asked and answered, however, are not all specific to the theme so let them rip!

Right out of the gate, for instance, Nosrat implores listeners to take this downtime to properly stock your pantry with a variety of oils, spices, vinegars, and more pantry items that’ll expand the possibilities when it comes time to decide what to make.
