Mark Bittman Retiring The Minimalist, Heading to Op-Ed


After 13 years, Mark Bittman is retiring his The Minimalist column.

Per The Cutline, Bittman will start writing for the Times‘ opinion section on February 6 after writing his last Minimalist column this Wednesday.

The writer and cookbook author’s weekly opinion column, which will run on Wednesdays, will cover environmentally sustainable eating, food policy, and dietary and health issues. He will also have an opinion blog and in March start writing a new column for The New York Times Magazine called On Food.

And not so incidentally, The Minimalist will live on on Cooking Channel, where Bittman will host a show of the same name.
