About Heated

Our goal is to showcase the links between food and just about everything else: agriculture, politics, history, and labor; culture and cooking; identity, family, and love. It’s a new, ongoing, and exciting project, one in which we intend to involve lots of different voices and views — including, we hope, yours. This publication is produced by Mark Bittman, Melissa McCart, Daniel Meyer, Kate Bittman, and every other name you see on these pages.
