About Mark

There is no one like Mark Bittman, whose core message—that food has the power to make or break not only our personal health but that of the planet—is increasingly accepted and broadcast widely.

For The New York Times and all kinds of other publications, Bittman covers policy, agriculture, health, the environment and more, along, of course, with cooking and eating. His body of work spans all media with print and web columns, videos, interviews, TV appearances and shows. He’s a regular on the Today Show and has hosted four TV series, including Showtime’s Emmy Award-winning climate change documentary, Years of Living Dangerously.

Mark Bittman is especially known as the author of more than a dozen groundbreaking, popular books (three of which are now successful apps). He is thrilled to announce that How to Cook Everything Fast has just been released in October. The VB6 Cookbook was published this spring to expand on its popular predecessor, VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller and was credited by Forbes magazine as spawning one of the most important trends of the year. How to Cook Everything—widely considered the new bible of American cooking with well over 1 million copies sold—continues to demonstrate his combination of common sense and approachable authority after more than 15 years in print.
