When Samin Nosrat’s Salt Fat Acid Heat dropped on Netflix in tk, the chef and bestselling cookbook author gained a whole new fandom that fell hard for her contagious enthusiasm for cooking — and eating!
The four part series, inspired by her tkyear book of the same name, explored the four elements she writes are essential to creating all good food, blending the best qualities of two other foodie Netflix hits — the access and expertise of Chef’s Table and the approachability and humor of Somebody Feed Phil.
So it’ll no doubt be a bummer for fans that Nosrat recently revealed to PEOPLE that there will not be a second season of Salt Fat Acid Heat. Luckily, she’s got another show already in the works with Netflix that will no doubt fill the void.

“I’m just in the very, very early stages of figuring out what the next show is going to be. It won’t be another season of Salt Fat Acid Heat. It’ll be a different show,” the chef confirms.
She promises whatever comes next will have a lot of the same elements — “travel and cooking and people and all that” — but things are still in the brainstorming stage, what she calls “that dreaming time, when you’re like, where do you want to go? What do you want to eat? Who do you want to meet? It’s like a lot of post-it notes. That’s what we’re doing.”
Part of that dream includes a long (and sometimes surprising!) list of places she’d like to visit for the next iteration of her show: “Southeast Asia, Turkey, India. I want to go to Disneyland. I want to go to Peru, I want to go to Ecuador.”

There is one place she’s dead set on visiting for the new show, and it’s become a foodie-favorite destination.
“I will definitely make it to Oaxaca [Mexico] this year. That one you can quote me on,” she says, when asked if she’s confirmed any destinations for the next Netflix venture. (Season one saw her visit Italy, Japan, Mexico’s Yucatan and her home of Berkeley, California.)
“I’ve never been there and I’ve always been so fascinated by the culture, by the textiles, by the natural light, by the food obviously, by the food traditions. I really, really want to go there.”
There’s no release date yet for the second season of NOT-Salt Fat Acid Heat.
