Michael Pollan: Cooked


Guests: Michael Pollan

[REBROADCAST] “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” That’s the famous advice of food writer MICHAEL POLLAN.  Pollan has written a number of bestselling books exploring the problems with America’s industrialized food system and the way we eat including “The Onmivore’s Dilemma” and “In Defense of Food.”  Now his advice is to get back into the kitchen and cook! In his recent book, “Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation,” Pollan looks at how fire, water, air and earth change food and the importance of preparing our food ourselves.  He talked to Marty this spring about the pleasures and purpose of cooking.
