Mark Bittman is a TakePart favorite. He’s known for his minimalist style of cooking, down-to-earth advice, and no-frills approach to working in the kitchen. This week, we’ve paired up with Byliner to give away copies of Bittman’s new e-book, Cooking Solves Everything.
Here’s a brief excerpt of Bittman’s wisdom:
Cooking is like exercise or spending time in nature or good conversation: The more you do it, the more you like it, the better you get at it, and the more you recognize that its rewards are far greater than its efforts and that even its efforts are rewards. When you become even marginally good at cooking, you begin to enjoy the process. Even the shopping. Even, sometimes, the cleanup.
To enter to win a FREE copy of the e-book, all you need to do is leave a comment below answering the following question: Why do you love being in the kitchen?
