I been a fan for Mark Bittman ever since I saw him on Spain...on the road again TV show on PBS. Even thou he was a little bit grumpy he made an awesome team with Claudia Bassols. I guess I'm a sucker for grumpy old man...they just cracked me up!! After 13 years his weekly column "The Minimalist" in The New York Times has come to an end its a little sad but we can always go back an reminiscent his stories, recipes and adventures. Also be sure check out his books and don't forget to download his appt for your phone!!
