Who do these hands belong to -- enjoying a chocolate sandwich and some soup with moi yesterday?
Who is leading the nation towards healthier eating, trying to switch the ratios of plants and meat on our plates?
Who is up-front, opinionated, quick-witted yet also attentive, inquisitive, relaxed and charming?
The Mr. Mark Bittman. We had an amazing afternoon, on a food cart tour I planned -- In true Portland fashion, it started to rain and we ditched the cart idea (after sampling just a few items) and ducked into a lounge for some conversation. It was a remarkable couple of hours with someone I greatly admire. More to come on this story over on The Kitchn and Mark's blog, on his site.
