Mark Bittman is known for his no-nonsense style and no-frills approach to cooking. Drawing links between diet, health, and climate change, the popular food writer shows us how our bodies and our planet are paying the price for overproduction and overconsumption of food.

In Food Matters, Bittman takes the mystery out of what terms like "organic" and "agricultural sustainability" mean to focus on what small, but powerful things we can do to eat in an environmentally responsible and budget-friendly way. He explains how to eat more consciously and to become less reliant on animal products and nutritionally worthless food. By making simple adjustments to his diet, Bittman lost 35 pounds, improved his health, and reduced his carbon footprint. Join us for an evening that will make you rethink your relationship with food.
