A Bite of Bittman

What if you were offered the chance to frolic around Spain eating delicious food with a famous actress? You’d say yes. But let’s say that actress is Gwyneth Paltrow. Would you reconsider if you had to listen to Coldplay the whole time? Who knows what music brilliant food writer Mark Bittman and Gwynny were listening to while filming Spain: On the Road Again, but it’s easy to see why people love Bittman’s dry humor and honest approach to food. Each week, he schools the masses how to cook healthfully and simply in “The Minimalist,” his New York Times food column. This Wednesday, the James Beard Award-winning Bittman will be in town promoting his newest book, The Food Matters Cookbook: 500 Revolutionary Recipes for Better Living. Learn more about sustainable eating at the Books & Books-sponsored reading at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden at 6 p.m.
