About the Author

MARK BITTMAN is one of the country's best-known and most widely respected food writers. His How to Cook Everything books, with over a million copies in print, are a mainstay of the modern kitchen, and his manifesto on pursuing a part-time vegan diet, VB6, debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. Bittman's writings on food policy and cooking appear in the Dining, Op-Ed, and Magazine sections of the New York Times.


"An intelligent rallying cry for anyone seeking a safe and healthy food supply, and all that entails." - Kirkus Reviews

"A Bone to Pick, a new collection of Bittman's columns and features, is destined to become a staple for those who want to consider, more deeply, what's on their plate." - Salon.com

"[Bittman's] complaints about what he calls a "broken" food system are consistently balanced with viable solutions; his resounding message ("eat real food") is simple enough, and supports his overall goal of human health and agricultural sustainability. Bittman's compelling essays are a call to action and a reminder to readers that the future of food - and of the planet - is in their own hands." - Publishers Weekly

"In this engrossing, provocative look at the country's food politics, Bittman examines the importance of creating a sustainable future for agriculture and food in the US. [A Bone to Pick] is sure to be a call for action for both readers at home and policy makers in creating a movement for a healthier future." - Clean Eating
