Resident Foodie Mark Bittman Changes Roles At The New York Times

After 13 years of penning The New York Times’s weekly dining column, The MinimalistMark Bittman is making the move over to the paper’s opinion section in early February.  Bittman’s new weekly opinion column will be accessible online and discuss dieting, health tips, food policy, and environmentally sustainable eating.  In addition to the upcoming digital venture, starting in March Bittman will publish an “On Food” feature in The New York Times Magazine.

Bittman’s move was fueled by his desire to explore alternative career paths.

I love The Minimalist and it’s been part of my heart and soul for a long time.  There are other things I want to do. I just think this is an opportunity I couldn’t forgo.

Bittman has been a contributor for the Times since 1990 and has published two well-known books — How to Cook Everything and Food Matters.  He has written his Minimalist column since 1997.
