In "Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation," Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen. Here, he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements-fire, water, air, and earth- to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread, and ferment everything from cheese to beer. In the course of his journey, he discovers that the cook occupies a special place in the world, standing squarely between nature and culture. Both realms are transformed by cooking, and so, in the process, is the cook.

Love Michael Pollan - he is always so engaging, personable, and open-minded. His research is thorough, his writing both clear and poetic, and his advice sensible. He just seems like a super-intelligent guy who is also down-to-earth and humane. I wish he was my neighbor and I could hang out with him!
I would still call myself a foodie for one reason : I enjoy exploring cultures through their food. The fact that I agree completely that food from certain areas is highly unique is exactly why I think it's important, and fun, to sample a little of everywhere. You learn so much about other cultures through sharing their food

Michael inspires me to cook at home. We haven't eaten out in over a month. My husband and I are feeling so much better! Thank you Michael!

Micheal Pollan is such a great guy and so interesting to listen to! I lived in China and he's right, stinky tofu tastes pretty awful but they seem to like it. The Chinese also seem to think cheese is horrible, except on pizza which they tend to like.

Ever since I read "The Omnivore's Dilemma," Michael Pollan has been one of my heroes!

Cooking engages your five senses, including intuition in ways you may not be aware. I taught cooking and students improved their overall writing and speaking skills.

You will be glad to hear, that fermentation changes everything! Traditional sourdough breads do not have gluten issues. I know you will do the research and find this truth, quickly, you just needed to be pointed in the right direction! ;) Thanks for all you've shared.
