About the Author

One of America's most popular and influential food writers, MARK BITTMAN is the author of more than a dozen cookbooks. He covers food policy, cooking, and eating as a New York Times columnist and the New York Times Magazine's lead food writer.


"The prolific Mark Bittman returns with a doorstop whose recipes neatly break down ingredients, prep and cook steps, variations and shortcuts, and suggested sides...Prediction: This book will be a standard gift for new cooks and off-to-college kids." --Scott Mowbray, Cooking Light

"New York Times
food writer Bittman returns with his How to Cook series, this time focusing on recipes that consider preparation time. Bittman believes we all have time to cook, we just need better recipes--and he does an excellent job of providing these dishes...At over a thousand pages, Bittman has delivered another brilliant, comprehensive reference."
--Publishers Weekly, starred

"He's been teaching us how to cook delicious food for years, and now Mark Bittman continues the
tradition with a focus on innovative, quick meals. His newest project is so much more than your typical
cookbook; it's a lifestyle guide for reinventing the efficiency with which we eat great food. Mark Bittman
is one of my heroes and everyone can stand to have a copy of his newest book in their collection."
--MARIO BATALI, chef, author, and entrepreneur

"In How to Cook Everything Fast, Mark Bittman provides the reader with tools missing in most people's
cooking repertoire: intuition and common sense. Read, cook, and repeat."
--TOM COLICCHIO, chef and owner of Craft Restaurants

"Cook AND Fast in the same title? Mark Bittman makes it possible to do both with delicious, healthy
recipes that you can pull together quickly. This should be the go-to cookbook for anyone interested in
returning to preparing real food for themselves and their families."
--KATIE COURIC, global anchor for Yahoo! News and New York Times best-selling author
