Mark Bittman, the author of ten books on food culture and cooking whose "The Minimalist" food column ran in The New York Times for over a decade, will deliver a lecture Friday, April 8 at Sleeping Lady Resort near Leavenworth.
Bittman will discuss his book, Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating, which explores the connection between diet and personal and planetary health. His argument is that a few simple dietary tweaks can help individuals lose weight, slow global warming, reduce environmental harms, and reduce cruelty to farm animals. And save money.
Sleeping Lady, Seattle arts patron/philanthropist Harriett Bullitt’s 67-acre retreat center, is located in a particularly stunning piece of the Cascade Mountains.
The overnight package includes tickets to the lecture, with rates starting at $318. VIP tickets to a dinner with Bittman prior to the lecture are also available along with single tickets to the event ($25 for adults / $15 for students and seniors).
