Michael Pollan cleaves through the complexities of food politics with a directness and clarity that will challenge you to think deeply about your own eating preferences.
It’s not so much proselytizing, as a laying out of facts about the unseen elements in our food production chain.
He frames many questions along the way, such as: Is organic produce a better choice than local when it’s grown thousands of miles away?
And he concludes with pithy advice that underpins his own food philosophy including gems like: Don’t eat anything your grandmother wouldn’t recognize.
My conclusion: It’s well written, well researched and well worth your time.
