Description

Mark Bittman’s talk is entitled The Future of Food, about the intersection of food, politics, the environment, and personal health. He’ll discuss “non-foods, like soda, and their impact, as well as how policy pushes foods, like wheat, meat, and dairy, that may be in no one’s best interests.” Plus he’ll discuss “the sticks and carrots that we need to move out of this mess.”

Most Sundays, Mark Bittman can be found in the food section of the _New York Times Magazine _where he focuses on preparing meals using a few ingredients in healthy and delicious ways. Bittman has been a journalist for over 40 years and a professional food writer since 1980. In 1987 he became the senior writer, later editor, of Cooks Illustrated, and in 1990 started writing for the New York Times; until recently, he had a weekly column, “The Minimalist.” He is the author of several books including _H__ow to Cook Everything_ (1998) and Food Matters (2010) and has hosted PBS series such as _Spain: On the Road Again, with Mario Batali and Gwyneth Paltrow (2008). _
