A Natural History of TransformationLarge Print - 2013
In Cooked, Michael Pollan 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 - and finds that reclaiming cooking as an act of enjoyment and self-reliance opens the door to a more nourishing life.
