Mark Bittman and Meat Substitutes !


We got an email yesterday from a Field Roast loving Seattlelite (Ariana) who told us that famed NY Times food writer Mark Bittman was interviewed on local NPR station KUOW.

I have followed and enjoyed Mark’s writing over the years…..ironically he is the author of How to Cook Everything Vegetarian!

At some point, during the interview Mark made a sweeping statement about how awful vegetarian meat substitutes were.

Ariana emailed the radio station and defended our honor! Thanks Ariana!

Mark probably doesn’t realize that there are people making real vegetarian meats….that have….fresh vegetables in them…..garlic, red wine, lemon juice that AREN’T attempting to be a fake animal meat…..

When Ariana contacted the station Mr. Bittman evidently (I haven’t heard the piece) said that he’d like to try some samples…..Mark..we’d love to get you some!

After Ariana emailed us I attempted to contact Mark at his NYtimes email address and got message back:
I’m sorry I cannot answer each individual query
and comment, but if you post these
questions/comments on the blog – – I’m sure they’ll get
answered. (Rest assured that I do read everything.)
Thanks for writing-

Does anyone know how to contact Mark so we can turn him on to what we are doing? Where is Mark Bittman!
