New York Times columnist and cookbook author Bittman (How To Cook Everything) presents a collection of his columns from 2011 through 2014. While the timeliness of some columns has long passed, the content is still interesting and the ideology relevant. Topics include responsible farming, government regulation, junk food, school lunches, and the future of the food supply. Bittman demonstrates why he is so popular—he not only tells you what you need to know but also why you should care about it. Anyone with even a passing interest in what they eat will find something to enjoy here. Narrator Robert Fass provides an insightful performance, easily conveying the passion behind the writing.
VERDICT With Bittman's popularity, this will be in demand in any library with foodies as patrons.
