Samin Nosrat On Joy, Cooking And Beans

Samin Nosrat (November 7, 1979 -)

There is so little joy to be had these days. I’m learning that we have to take it where we can get it, even if it’s just in a pot of beans. So if you prefer to cook yours in an Instant Pot or with any other tool, then by all means, do! This is just my ritual. It’s not a prescription, but an offering. And maybe I’ll even find another use for that Instant Pot. If I don’t, I’ll pass it on to someone to whom it will bring a whole lot of joy.
