Interviewing Mark Bittman, New York Times Food Writer

April 8, 2014

Did I ever tell you guys that time I interviewed Mark Bittman? You know, the same guy who started the Minimalist column, has written several books including How to Cook Everything and How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. You know, super casual right? 😉 (By the way I’m totally humble bragging bragging, but it’s Mark Bittman!!)

Interviewing Mark Bittman

For those unfamiliar with Bittman, I would highly recommend checking out his column in the New York Times where he writes mostly about food policy and investigative pieces about the most pressing food issues of our time. This guy is no joke, friends.

What I love about Bittman is that he plays no games. He tells it how it is, sometime to one’s own discomfort and I totally respect that. You could chalk it up to the fact that the guy is a New Yorker through and through, but whatever it is, we need more voices like his.

In this hour long interview (I would suggest listening to it while you cook this) myself and another Jewish Food Justice Fellow ask Mark Bittman questions about food stamps, sustainability and local vs. organic food. It was an incredible experience to be able to ask one of my food heroes some of the questions I’ve been thinking a lot about over the past few years, and I feel totally blessed to have had this opportunity. I hope all enjoy this video and please feel free to leave some comments below!

Thank you Mark for spending time with us and sharing your expertise and wisdom!

    How exciting! I love his column too. I will definitely listen later tonight probably while cooking dinner :)
    Not sure I’ve ever posted before, but I love your blog Annabelle!

      Thank you Abby! The interview was pretty interesting because it was such a small group of people and we got to ask some of those hard hitting questions. Would love to hear what you think!
