Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Continuing the conversation started by Michael Pollan in The Omnivore's Dilemma and Karl Weber in Food, Inc., Mark Bittman makes a compelling case for curbing our take-out and eat-out habits in the Kindle Single Cooking Solves Everything. Everyone knows that dropping the frozen fish sticks and driving through the drive-through are better for your health, but most of us have succumbed to the convenience these things provide, especially when the media is so skilled at persuading us that our busy lives don't allow the time to prepare good, wholesome food for ourselves and for our families. However, as Bittman points out, we do seem to find the time for The Real Housewives, Snooki, and SpongeBob SquarePants, spending an average of two hours and forty-five minutes, each day, watching television. But this Kindle Single does not aim to scold. It's meant to empower us to take control of our diets, and in doing so, we're not only helping our waistlines, but also the economy and the planet. Moreover, the communal benefits of cooking at home with family and friends are not to be underestimated, and you don't need to possess Bittman's culinary gifts to enjoy them. Take it from someone who has ruined JELL-O (don't judge), there are plenty of easy, tasty, and nutritious meals that you can put on the table. Sure, it's going to take longer than it takes for you to warm a White Castle in the microwave, but as Bittman convincingly contends, the rewards outweigh the added efforts. --Erin Kodicek
