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. 

Even More OptionsThe Best Food Podcasts Right NowEach installment of the new podcast, entitled “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 beans. Questions asked and answered, however, are not all specific to the theme so let them rip!

The series, co-hosted by Samin’s longtime friend, musician, and podcaster Hrishikesh Hirway, proves to be a light, fun, and somewhat freeform endeavor, with an emphasis on know-how and trade secrets. 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.
