Quote of the Week

Mark Bittman, on his new book, Food Matters.

“I have no interest in helping people becoming chefs. I have an interest in 50 percent of the people in America knowing how to cook. And whether they cook like chefs or not, I don’t care. It’s probably better if they don’t. It would be better if they cook like me, which is adequately.”

    I've reserved a copy of this book at my local library.I like Bittman. I have his book How to Cook Everything, and I love it because it shares a base recipe, and then plenty of suggestions to adapt it to the ingredients I might have on hand or whatever might be in season.A few weeks ago at the NY Times, he shared some savory whole-grain recipes that inspired me to change my breakfast routine a bit. I think, he fixed some wheat berries with some seasame oil, scallions, and soy sauce. I need more breakfast dishes like this.

    I just finished Bittman's book. I like how you takes Michael Pollan's ideas a step further and shows us how to eat better. There are a lot of great recipes in this book.
