Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS)

The UWM Distinguished Lecture Series at UWM presents

An Evening with Samin Nosrat, NYTimes columnist, author and host of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat


Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 7PM

UWM Student Union, Wisconsin Room

2200 E. Kenwood Blvd., Milwaukee, WI 53211

While an undergraduate studying English at UC Berkeley, Samin Nosrat stepped into the kitchen at Chez Panisse restaurant in San Francisco, an act that happily determined the course of her life and career. Since 2000, she has pursued her twin passions of food and words with equal passion, writing the brilliant cooking guide Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, also now streaming on Netflix. Her work as a chef and author has always had the aim to inspire, create community, and raise cultural, social and environmental awareness. Food is more than fuel, but also a way in which we connect with each other, and Samin Nosrat will show us both the how and the why in this evening at the UWM Union.

For more information, call 414.229.5780 or email activities@uwm.edu. Sponsored by UWM Student Involvement and UWM Restaurant Operations. Books will be sold at the event by Boswell Book Company.
