Chances are good that you’ve made one of Mark Bittman’s recipes. And chances are even better that it turned out delicious. In his writings, the New York Times dining columnist steers readers toward mindful eating. This Saturday, he’ll discuss “How to Cook Everything Fast,” his latest cookbook. (Lisner Auditorium, 730 21st St. NW; 7 p.m., $15.)

Update: This event has been moved to the Marvin Center Grand Ballroom (800 21st St. NW). The time will stay the same.

What were you like in high school?
I cut a lot of classes. I was a wise guy. I did OK despite that. I worked on the school newspaper.

What is your favorite snack?
Peanuts.

Salted?
Definitely salted. Are you kidding?

What’s something you’re not very good at?
Running. I’ve run marathons, but I’m not very good at it.

What’s the last book you read?
“Gone Girl.” It’s terrible. Really horrible. I was on the road and it’s what I had.

What is your favorite thing about your home?
The beautifully designed, but tiny, kitchen.

What’s the name of your Wi-Fi network at home?
It’s like “apple 3sgl0 blah blah.” It’s whatever they gave me.
