In the Acid installment of Salt, Fat, Acid, Head, Samin Nosrat travels to the Yucatán to explore the many citrus varieties native to the region and the multitude of options for adding acid to a dish. This is a curious episode compared to the first two as while there are some interesting hosts and hostesses for Nosrat on her journey, the episode is both light on cooking teaching (with instead a shallow background on acid concepts) and seems to venture into the concept of spiciness more than acidity (which clouds the lesson). Not a poor offering by any means, but a more in depth exploration how to evaluate and use various acid components would have been more interesting and more practically useful. Written by GunnersMate
