I cooked the "reformed" Mark Bittman pizza the other night. This version, found in his new book Food Matters, was made with whole-wheat flour and rosemary leaves. To it can be added a "light touch" of tomato sauce and meat as an optional topping. In prior years, the pizzas I have made using recipes in the cookbooks written by Bittman, a New York Times columnist, were heavier on the sauce, lighter on the vegetables, loaded with sausage. Bittman says he and his cooking style have changed.

The Best Recipes in the World Mark Bittman Broadway Books / 2005 / $29.95 For a writer who calls his New York Times column "The Minimalist," Mark Bittman is fond of superlatives. His first major cookbook announced its ambitions with the title How to Cook Everything, and lived up to them by becoming a best-seller that spawned spinoff cookbooks and a TV show. So it's not surprising that when Bittman decided to take on cooking around the globe, he called his 757-page effort The Best Recipes in the World.

THE TROUBLE WITH chefs, says veteran food writer Mark Bittman, is that they tend to make cooking too complicated. In a chef's view, any dish that does not require 40 ingredients and a day of preparation is not really worthy of undertaking, he says. Bittman knows that this sweeping characterization does not apply to all chefs, all the time. But he does believe that at the heart of the grand creations of most chefs lurks a simple recipe that home cooks can handle. For example, when noted Manhattan chef Daniel Boulud prepares lamb, he cooks it four ways, saucing a stuffed saddle of lamb with preserved lemon zest, roasting a leg of lamb with beans and mushrooms, grilling marinated brochettes of lamb chops and braising a lamb shoulder.

A warning to the time-challenged: The recipes found in Mark Bittman's The Minimalist Cooks at Home (Broadway, 2002, $26) do require preparation. Some, like Chicken Curry in a Hurry, take mere minutes, but others, requiring dicing, mincing and stirring, may take an hour or so. Still, that's not bad for flavorful dishes that ask for only modest culinary ability. Bittman's updated collection of 99 recipes, crafted to "give you more flavor from fewer ingredients in less time," is a breezy, nonthreatening contribution to the canon of cookbooks geared toward those of us who like to cook but don't have all day and have never gotten around to perfecting their reduction prowess.

The Cadillac Grand Prix of Washington was a great success on the racetrack and in the grandstands last month. The only problem - and it was wholly predictable - was the noise generated by racecars near a residential community. The promoter, Chris Lencheski, and Washington officials were aware of the noise issue from the moment they began negotiating to bring the American Le Mans Series and its companion events to town. Noise is one of many issues - crowds, parking, traffic, safety - inherent to the sport.

We've had ethnic cookbooks, regional cookbooks, appetizer and dessert cookbooks, and books about a particular kind of food - soup, say, or salsa. But in the past few years, there has been a mini-trend developing for compendium cookbooks.These are the encyclopedias of cooking, the ones that tell you how to prepare everything from soup to nuts, from asparagus to zabaglione. The new ones are aimed at those baby boomers and others who eschewed cooking when they were growing up, and now are scrambling to learn.
