Good bye to The Minimalist

    One of the best cooking columns anywhere is over. Apparently Bittman has given up the Mimimalist to join the Opinion section of the Times where he'll write about food

    In part, what I see as the continuing attack on good, sound eating and traditional farming in the United States is a political issue. I’ll be writing regularly about this in the opinion pages of The Times, and in a blog that begins next week. That’s one place to look for me from now on. The other is in The Times Magazine, where I’ll be writing a recipe column most Sundays beginning in March.

    Part of my reasoning in going to the opinion section is to advocate, essentially, for eaters’ rights. But the response of good cooks, and those of us who write about cooking, must be to continue to look for ways to bring real food to all of our tables.

    Which, in a way, is pretty funny, because it’s where The Minimalist began.


    Here's 20 of his most watched videos.

    He's the direct antithesis of a food snob. He cooks in a kitchen the size of a closet on an old electric stove.

    Whew! I first read the thread title as The Mentalist
     
  3. Bittman is great. I have two of his recipe books. Most comprehensive cookbooks I've ever seen.

    If you have an IPhone, ITouch or iPad, get his "How to Cook Everything (on the go)" app. Awesome!
