Mark Bittman seems to come up a lot lately on this blog, largely due to my recent acquisition of How to Cook Everything Vegetarian, quickly becoming my favorite cookbook of all time! But this post isn’t about cooking; however, it is about Food.
Mark Bittman gave a TED talk last year that’s well worth watching (you can view it up top). It’s a Pollan-esque polemic on the state of the food industry, and yeah, most of us have heard this before already. However, Bittman’s marked wit and unabashed use of the word “fart” makes the argument well worth another listen.
In this fiery and funny talk, New York Times food writer Mark Bittman weighs in on what’s wrong with the way we eat now (too much meat, too few plants; too much fast food, too little home cooking), and why it’s putting the entire planet at risk.
