Mark Bittman’s “The Minimalist”

6 Mar

I just finished watching Mark Bittman’s new TV show, The Minimalist on the Cooking Channel. I am a fan of his podcast, but unfortunately, rarely remember to read his New York Times column. The good news is that Bittman’s half-hour show has all the dry humor and fabulous, easy recipes as his fun podcast. The bad news is that the show appears to be several of his video-podcasts smooshed together. (Although they may be filming extra segments for the TV show, I wasn’t able to find out.) The first episode was all pasta recipes, and I definitely recognized two segments from his podcast. However, the last recipe was new-to-me and fascinating. He made a risotto-style pasta, using the same technique of slowly adding stock to the pasta and veggies to create a creamy sauce all in one pot. So unless you have seen every last one of Bittman’s podcasts, I recommend checking out The Minimalist in its TV incarnation. Bittman’s recipes are fuss-free and healthy, just what we all need more of in our lives.
