Celebrated food writer and cookbook author Mark Bittman (How to Cook Everything) believes that food has a critical impact not only on our personal health but on that of the planet. He delivers strong views on a variety of topics including policy, agriculture, health, the environment and, of course, food. His recipes are intended to be accessible to even the newest chefs, offering advice on essential equipment and ingredient substitutions, plus extensive technique illustrations. His newest offering compiles more than 2,000 simple recipes for a variety of baked goods, from American favorites (Crunchy Toffee Cookies, Baked Alaska) to of-the-moment updates (Gingerbread Whoopie Pies)—even global baking (Nordic Ruis Bread and Afghan Snowshoe Naan). In conversation with award-winning Public Radio host and producer Steve Scher, he’ll share insights into his book, and outline the key tenets for becoming a master baker.
