I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).
Bittman’s VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00
Mark Bittman’s new book, Vegan Before 6:00 or, as he likes to call it, VB6, is now out.
I like this idea. For starters Bittman is an omnivore, not a vegan. As he points out, he’s
Someone who has built an entire career on my love of cooking and eating good food. And VB6 is the way I eat now, and have for six years…VB6 is also realistic…it also maintains that you can love food that tastes good—and eat a lot of it—while you improve your health.
…But you don’t help to go VB6…you need only a commitment to refrain from animal products and hyperprocessed foods until dinner time.
Good idea. It worked for him and should work for others.
If you are in New York and want him to sign a copy, Bittman is being interviewed tonight at 7;00 p.m. by Sam Sifton at the Barnes & Noble on 17th Street.
