Former New York Times food journalist and #1 bestselling author Mark Bittman (How to Cook Everything, Eat Vegan Before 6:00) has a love for food and a passion for food issues. He explores all aspects of food - from what to have for dinner, how to raise healthy children, and how to make a perfect meringue to big picture questions about climate change, sustainability, and global hunger. Each week, Mark talks with celebrities, cooks, chefs, farmers, activists, policymakers, and food-lovers about the role of food in their lives, what they love to cook, and the ways that food impacts our society. Plus Mark offers handy cooking tips, recipes, answers to your questions, and much more!
Mark has run a number of ads for food-related sponsors and non-food-related sponsors on the podcast. Many of Mark's listeners have been following him in the New York Times and elsewhere for decades so their relationship and trust with the host runs deep. Mark always tries to incorporate a personal story or his own knowledge into every ad read. This makes ads feel more like part of the episode and enjoyable for his listeners. All of our sponsors so far have been very pleased with the results.
