Netflix is making more room at its table for food TV. The streaming giant announced that the New York Times best seller and James Beard Award–winning Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will be turned into a four-part mini-series.

Debuting on October 19, the culinary travel show will have chef and author Samin Nosrat explore cooking and dishes in Japan, Italy, Mexico, and at her old stomping grounds Chez Panisse, where she once worked. Nosrat — who taught Michael Pollan to cook — celebrated in an Instagram post, in which she says that she’s been working on the show for nearly two years.

The news was shared at the TCA Summer Press Tour, where Netflix also announced another new show, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell, and the return of Chef’s Table on September 28.
