The Distinguished Lecture Series Presents: Samin Nosrat, Author and Creator of the Netflix Series Salt Fat Acid Heat

October 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Union Wisconsin Room – Student Union, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd. – 2nd level

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. Samin Nosrat will show us both the how and the why food is more than fuel, but also a way in which we connect with each other.

Sponsored by UWM Student Involvement and UWM Restaurant Operations. Books will be sold at the event by Boswell Book Company.

All tickets are FREE for UWM students and can be picked up at the UWM Student Union Information Desk – students are encouraged to get their tickets as soon as possible before tickets sell out.
