All Critics (13)

Though it's not a political show, this is SFAH's most political act: exploring and learning about food as tradition and identity in a way that's celebratory and appreciative without being presumptuous or didactic.

It's a beautiful series not just about food, but about culture and experience and tradition with a very heavy and notable focus on women and people of color throughout the world.

Nosrat's goal, as simple as it sounds, isn't to show you how to win the day. It's to provide universal equipment for living-to help excavate the core knowledge of flavors that all grandmas seem to intuit naturally.

Instead of being overawed by the technical brilliance that goes into great cooking, you are left marvelling at its simplicity.
