Michael Pollan: Cooked

Listen

Guests: Michael Pollan

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 Dilemna” and “In Defense of Food.”  Now his advice is to get back into the kitchen and cook! In his new 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 talks to Marty about the pleasures and purpose of cooking.
