Salt Fat Acid Heat (Net­flix, from Fri)

or­di­nary. Jack­son wrote ex­tra­or­di­nary tales that con­tinue to be­witch read­ers to­day and ar­guably the most fa­mous of them is The Haunt­ing of Hill House. It’s al­ready been turned into a film twice and a stage play. Now it’s been ex­panded for a 10-part TV se­ries.

A new run of Chef’s Ta­ble be­gan a cou­ple of weeks ago and The Cu­ri­ous Cre­ations of Chris­tine McCon­nell is also head­ing our way shortly. Sand­wiched be­tween the pair is an­other fresh culi­nary se­ries, this time a four-parter based on Samin Nos­rat’s best-sell­ing and award-win­ning book of the same name. Nos­rat has been de­scribed as “Amer­ica’s next great cook­ing teacher” and her tome teaches peo­ple how to cook in­stinc­tively with­out a recipe by breaking down the fun­da­men­tals of cook­ing. Each episode will fo­cus on a dif­fer­ent as­pect of food and its prepa­ra­tion. Cam­eras fol­low Nos­rat as she ex­plores kitchens around the world while teach­ing her view­ers a thing or two about culi­nary per­fec­tion.

Apos­tle (Net­flix, from Fri)

Trail­ers are de­signed to en­tice view­ers into watch­ing some­thing and they can be rather mis­lead­ing. How­ever, if clips from Apos­tle, a hor­ror film set dur­ing the early 20th cen­tury, are to be be­lieved, those who dare to tune in will be scared silly. Dan Stevens plays Thomas Richard­son, who heads to a re­mote is­land to res­cue his sis­ter from the re­li­gious cult hold­ing her hostage. Its lead­ers have de­manded a ran­som for her re­turn.
