Mark Bittman: What’s wrong with what we eat

In this fiery and funny talk, New York Times food writer Mark Bittman weighs in on what’s wrong with the way we eat now (too much meat, too few plants; too much fast food, too little home cooking), and why it’s putting the entire planet at risk.


A look at restaurant Frantzén (VIDEO)


Fresh off the heels of announcing the split from partner Daniel Lindeberg, chef Bjorn Frantzén is promiting his Restaurant Frantzén with this new video.

The video is chock-full of food porn and highlights the exquisitely delicate cuisine that made Frantzen Lindeberg famous and number 12 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants lists sponsored by S.Pellegrinoand Acqua Panna.

You’ll feel your mouth water as you watch the team at Restaurant Frantzén prepare dishes like a canapé of pomegranate-galangal root macaron with creamy chicken liver, King crab poached in beer and dill, and lobster with algae and herb emulsion.

The video sums up two hours of work in just three minutes. Enjoy!

Here are our favourite two from the series – although it’s the Ketchup / Fishfinger one that provoked the most glee here at CR towers…
