Admire The Minimalist Mark Bittman, for the range and stripped bare minimalism of the recipes, for the super-comic videopods with their ever evolving titles sequence. I was to feature him in my links list and found — surprise surprise — he had stolen one of my recipes (where “stolen” means “o my god, he made a video of that, I do it all the time!”). Now I’m not saying it’s the wheatberries & scallions one (except that I go with oatmeal), because you’ll figure what I have for brisk breakfast on quick days when I’m all thumping energetic.
A part of his charm is the city kid in a kitchen simplicity of the recipes, and the gritty this is so good I can’t mess up even if I try attitude. Beyond that I have no idea why his podcasts interest me more than movie trailers. (Speaking of trailers, who’s this guy doing the gruffy voiceover in *all* of them? — That guy deserves the mallet — I’m so sick of him, good movies are good in spite of him, and movies that avoid him are good by default.)
