Cooked

By Michael Pollan
Audio book format

Michael Pollan offers a new and unique twist on food with this non-fiction selection, examining the relationship of humans to food and food preparation through the four basic elements of earth, air, fire and water. Combining stories which include everything from nuances of yeast to our territorial claims of recipe origins, Pollan delivers a true learning experience. The history and transformation of some of our most basic and beloved culinary creations are revealed through his insightful observations in these four distinct arenas.

People spend less time than ever in the kitchen, yet we are more obsessed than ever with cooking. With that in mind, this book will cater to all foodies - the head chef and novice alike. As a fan of all things “cuisine”, I found Michael Pollan’s exploration of food a fascinating listen. Bon app├ętit!
