Mark Bittman How to Cook Everything Fast

All you need to get real food on the table fast is a better recipe—and now you’ve got it. Beloved New York Times columnist and award-winning cookbook author Mark Bittman has started a recipe revolution with How to Cook Everything Fast, the follow-up to his New York Times bestseller, How to Cook Everything.

In How to Cook Everything Fast, Bittman shows how anyone can make 2,000 simple, incredibly flavorful dishes incredibly fast—in under 45, 30, even 15 minutes—including Split Whole Chicken and Vegetables, Skillet Meat Loaf, Báhn Mì, and Potato and Spinach Saag. Approaching every part of cooking with a fresh eye, Bittman reimagines how to use ingredients, equipment, and techniques to boost speed. The result is a truly easy-to-follow game plan for discovering an all-new repertoire of fantastic recipes and, most importantly, for becoming a faster cook.

On November 2, 2014 at 7:30 PM, Bittman will join Atlanta Bureau Chief of The New York Times Kim Severson at MJCCA-Zaban Park (5342 Tilly Mill Road Dunwoody, Georgia 30338).
