Description
Since his New York Times op-ed column debuted in 2011, Mark Bittman has emerged as one of the most impassioned and opinionated observers of the food landscape. He routinely makes readers think twice about how the food we eat is produced, distributed, and cooked, and he illuminates the profound impact that diet—both good and bad—can have on our own health and that of the planet. Here Bittman's most memorable and thought-provoking columns are compiled into a single volume, as he examines agricultural practices, government legislation, fad diets, and corporate greed—and finds that the issues governing what ends up in our market basket and on our tables are both complex and often deliberately confusing. And yet, he contends that we can be optimistic about the future of our food and its impact on our health, as slow-food movements, better school-lunch programs, and even "healthy fast food" become part of the norm.

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