Mark Bittman on The Colbert Report [video]
Mark Bittman was the guest on last night's The Colbert Report promoting his latest book, Food Matters. Stephen Colbert needled him a little bit about the whole "being vegan until 6PM" thing, but Colbert's been going easy on his guests lately, and he actually let Bittman talk. We liked the opener from Colbert:
You have a book called Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating — are you implying that I could be eating while I was unconscious? Because that would be great — there's a lot of eating time I don't get in... Before I get into bed, I like to dip a little bacon. So I have flavor when I'm sleeping. Just a pinch between the cheek and gum, so I have full bacon flavor without lighting up.
