Fast Food

October 9, 2014

Fast Food

“It’s no coincidence that fast-casual restaurants are on the rise; we don’t even have time to eat anymore.

Nor, it seems, does anyone have time to cook. The publishing world has created a whole genre of cookbooks designed to help the harried put food on the table during a workday that seems to end only when head hits pillow.

Now one of the most influential and prolific voices in food has joined a crowded field of meals-in-minutes celebrities: New York Times columnist and author Mark Bittman has just released How to Cook Everything Fast: A Better Way to Cook Great Food  (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $35), the fifth in his series of dense, recipe-rich tomes that place an emphasis on food preparation, not food-porn photos. ‘Fast’ spans more than 1,050 pages, most packed with recipes (approximately 2,000 of them, including variations), techniques and tips for working smarter in the kitchen.”

— “Mark Bittman’s ‘How to Cook Everything Fast,’ reviewed,” Tim Carman, Washington Post

It's Bittman vs. Gaga at Time Magazine
Food writer Mark Bittman is pitted against Lady Gaga over at Time Magazine. No it’s not about her meat dress. They’re both finalists in the Time Top 100 Poll.

The online poll aims to determine the 100 most influential people of 2011. Every home cook in the known universe has a spattered copy of Bittman’s How to Cook Everything, and if that’s not influential, we don’t know what is.

The Minimalist Manifesto

February 3, 2011

The Minimalist Manifesto

Mark Bittman’s first Op Ed column appeared in Wednesday’s New York Times. The title: “A Food Manifesto for the Future.”  Readers had a few questions, chiefly “Where are the recipes?” and “What are you doing?”

Mr. Bittman responded in a post on his new NYT blog: “What Am I Doing?”  This should not be confused with his other blog, the one with the recipes. His recipes will also be appearing in the New York Times Magazine shortly.

Foodie Fists

Foodie Fists
The logo for the Vegan soup kitchen movement “Food Not Bombs” is remarkably similar to symbols for British chef Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution crusade and Mark Bittman’s old New York Times blog. Coincidence?

Logo-napping is small stuff to the veggie volunteers who run the “Food Not Bombs” soup kitchen. They will stoop at nothing, even feeding the hungry homeless within slurping distance of a sacred national shrine, Walt Disney World in Orlando. For free, until vigilant Orlando officials and courts stopped such sacrilege. The FNB conspiracy is spreading to other cities. We blame Al-Qaeda.
