Our copy of Michael Pollan’s new book, In Defense of Food, has just arrived from Amazon. To give you an idea where he is going with this, from the inside cover:
Food. There’s plenty of it around, and we all love to eat it. So why should anyone need to defend it? Because most of what we’re consuming today is not food, and how we’re consuming it – in the car, in front of the TV, and increasingly alone – is not really eating.
Expect a full review shortly.
