"Kitchen Little" by Mark Bittman

May 07, 2013

When you argue, as I frequently do, that cooking has the potential to help us deal with many of our dietary problems, you often elicit a kind of “I don’t care, I hate cooking” response in addition to the expected “I don’t have time.” And that’s fine; cooking isn’t the only route to eating better, and besides, those who hate cooking, or can’t make the time for it, may be lucky enough to have someone else cook for them. As long as they wash the dishes.

From Kitchen to Table, Gifts to Tempt

For Young Cooks

Be relentless: it’s the only way to get picky children to learn their way around the kitchen and become the curious omnivores the world needs.

Sally Sampson has 21 cookbooks to her credit yet still felt she wanted to do something with food “that mattered.” In 2009, with the aim of addressing childhood obesity in America and with input from the medical community, she shopped around an idea for an illustrated pamphlet about cooking that could be distributed at pediatricians’ offices during wellness checkups.
