Cooked
Cooked by Michael Pollan (2000s)
Though I'm interested in food issues, this is my first Michael Pollan book. Thoroughly enjoyed the subject matter, especially the introduction at the end where he explains why cooking is important. The book centers on the 4 elements (fire, water, air, earth) and a corresponding cooking "interest" or technique and Pollan details his process learning how to cook with each of the elements. However, some of the chapters were a bit too detailed and scientific for me; was definitely getting a bit restless toward the end. Overall, started off loving it, but got a little bogged down at the end. -- Added by gfr@IU on 01/25/2014
