An Evening with Michael Pollan
Back-to-the-land advocate and food activist Michael Pollan's earlier book, In Defense of Food, pushed an eating mantra that could use some revisiting from time to time: "Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants." Pollan's newest book, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, turns its focus to a more intimate place of scrutiny: his own kitchen. Cooked focuses on the missing middle link of the food chain: cooking. Pollan will be joined by OPB's Dave Miller, host of Think Out Loud, to explore why the author asserts that taking back control of cooking may be the single most important step anyone can take to help make the American food system become healthier and more sustainable. Ticket price for the evening includes admission and a copy of Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, which will be distributed at the event.
