    I’m interested in a nice cast iron mainly because it doesn’t have potential toxic chemicals that can leach into food during cooking. I also love to cook since I believe both cooking and eating wonderful food are important in healing and maintaining good health. I look forward to hearing your arguments towards vegan eating, even though I lean towards both plant and animal foods.

    Congrats on the new book! Since being diagnosed with celiac disease, I have been eager to learn as much as possible about eating healthy and feeling good. I will be purchasing your book as soon as possible.

    I’m not a vegetarian nor a vegan, but I am a foodie. My husband and I recently gave up our house on the beach for a lifestyle of traveling the country in our camper van. We cook what I call Gypsy Gourmet because it is healthier than your typical campfire goodies, and a lot more fun. We adapt recipes so that they can be cooked (and even baked) over an open fire, weather be damned. The other night we had wood smoking in our fire ring all night, through a series of thunderstorms, and that wood was still smoking in the morning. Between the fresh fresh fresh fruits and veggies we find in stands along the road, your cookbook, and one more cast iron skillet we will ROCK this country.

    I have ordered your book and am already easing into a vegan diet. I think that part vegan makes sense for me because I grew up on a farm and had meat and dairy every day of my life and I can’t imagine never eating meat again. I have weigh, blood pressure and cholesterol issues and I think this plan would really improve my overall health. Can’t wait for the book to arrive. Thank you.

    Can’t wait for summer in MN and doing breakfast over the campfire and shore lunch on the beach!!

    Thanks for all of the insightful and educating links. The Monsanto info was such an eye opener.

    We own “how to cook everything” and use it religiously. I’ve also enjoyed your TED talk.

    We tried to go *mostly* vegetarian with our children – actually tried “weekday vegetarian” from another TED talk right after yours. But it’s been difficult. VERY difficult. Ironically though – only difficult for our evening meals!! So your solution – eat Vegan before 6 pm, seems a logical next attempt.

    We need to try SOMETHING because:

    1. my numbers, much like yours, suggest I need to make changes fast or they’re going to put me on meds for life :(
    2. we want to teach our young boys to eat right – a lesson neither myself nor my husband really learned at home (where vegetables were few and far between and when present – came from cans…)
    3. we are worried about the impact our eating has not just on our health, but on the environment and want to be better stewards of the earth

    Pre-ordered your book through Amazon. Super excited to open the first page on April 30. Thanks for doing all you do!

    Dear Mr. Bittman,
    My girlfriend and I live in a small one bedroom apartment in Washington, D.C. Our dream is to one day travel to all five continents, and all of the money we are able save goes towards that dream. We even have a big bottle where we keep change, which may not be the most sophisticated banking method but it’s worth something. Since graduating from college, we have struggled to find consistent work and unfortunately I think that it will be a long time until we can take our trip.
    This has not stopped us from dreaming and in the meantime we have found that our love of food is a vehicle for us to visit other countries and cultures. Every Saturday we take the afternoon to make something as a way of transporting ourselves beyond the confines of our small kitchen. It is our own little way for us to travel and also come together. It is the part of the week I look forward to the most. Right now we are using pans that we’ve haphazardly collected – a hand-me-down frying pan, a 2-quart sauce pan from goodwill, etc. We definitely don’t own anything as nice or as versatile as a Lodge skillet. I know my girlfriend has a “favorites” tab of cast iron cookware that she has wanted for as long as I’ve known her and it would mean the world to me if I could give her the skillet as a present.
    I’m sure you have many deserving people hoping for a skillet and I understand if you don’t decide to include me in the 10. Regardless, thank you for the opportunity to ask. Hope you are well.
    Sincerely,
    Emory Nelms.

    P.S. The “No-Knead” bread is the coolest recipe ever. With a bit of cinnamon and handful of raisins, it’s awesome. Thanks!

    Weird coincidence: I just started using my cast iron stuff again lately.

    Hi Mark!

    I am very excited to check out your upcoming book! Will you be making an audiobook version perchance? I think it would be a hit!!

  22. Diana Faria said...

    Congratulations on your new book Mr. Bittman. I can’t wait to read it.

    Congratulations on your new book Mr. Bittman. I can’t wait to read it.
    I was a Pescetarian for 20 plus years and only started eating red meat again while vacationing in Italy. Eating vegan seems like it might be a lot less work in terms of cleanliness both in the kitchen & internally with what we’ve all heard in the news regarding red meat and the bacteria inside one’s gut. & I never had to use a thermometer when cooking fish or use bleach to clean my counters after preparing a salad & I was twenty pounds lighter too!
    PS
    Please delete my last comment, it was a mistake.

    You’re book comes across as user friendly right from the get-go because it suggests there is a middle ground in crafting a healthy diet. My husband and I are retired and we’re not interested in big, heavy meals, and they don’t like us either. We think your book will give us fresh new ideas that help us do far more than just “cut back”.

  25. jm said...

    We enjoy your cookbooks and look forward to your vegan one.

    The older I get (I am 47) the more I can feel the effects of eating meat, especially on my joint and digestion. I am interested in figuring out how to eat without meat during the day so I feel better. The problem is I don’t know how. Also, I grew up eating farm raised animals and the meat we eat now doesn’t taste like what we once butchered ourselves.

  27. Michael O'Malley said...

    Love your books. Looking forward to this new addition to my collection!

  28. Steffani said...

    I just really appreciate and respect all that you have tried to do in terms of helping people think differently about food and cooking. I wish I could own every single one of the cookbooks that you have written.

    I’m one of the very few that actually use a (green/cream) Kalamazoo cook range. The quality of skillet cornbread coming out of that oven can only be believed by experiencing.

    I have rescued Lodge skillets from yard and estate sales and have treasured family skillets, a built in unused wall over holds the collection. My husband has a HUGE dutch oven he will cook chicken bog in this weekend at an annual event. When my daughter (the vegetarian) got her first apt. I gave her a Lodge skillet, well cured, and instructions for care. A new one would be for her to start her own collection. We both roast lots of vegetables for wonderful meals.
