California Matters with Mark Bittman

California Matters with Mark Bittman

Cookbook author and former New York Times columnist Mark Bittman has come west to explore California and the food that's grown and made here with the University of California Global Food Initiative. In this 10-part series he'll visit oyster farms in Northern California, Chinese restaurants in Southern California, and farmers in the Central Valley, stopping at points in between to talk to urban foragers and kids eating school lunches, among others. Join us here every other Tuesday for a new installment of California Matters.
