Mark Bittman has won IACP Julia Child Awards for his books Fish and How to Cook Everything, which has sold over 400,000 copies. He writes "The Minimalist" column for The New York Times, and his food writing appears in major publications nationwide. He is coauthor of the James Beard Award-winning Jean-Georges: Cooking at Home with a Four-Star Chef (Broadway Books, 1998).
New York Times columnist Bittman (How To Cook Everything) here offers more than 400 quick and easy recipes inspired by the seasons. Rather than standard recipe style, each one is only one paragraph, written in a conversational style, with a one-line headnote. Bittman describes the recipes as "precisely imprecise", and most are open to variations and improvisation. Sure to be popular. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 2/15/09.]
