Cooked Author Michael Pollan: "We're Breaking Down the Sexist Stereotypes of Cooking"

In Michael Pollan's most recent book, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, the author discusses how the four elements -- fire, water, air, and earth -- transform plants and animals into the food that ends up on our plates. Best known for his bestsellers The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food, Pollan penned Cooked as a staycation for food. Why go to a restaurant when you can do it in your own kitchen? This Thursday, Miami Dade College will host the author at the Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami, and Short Order spoke with Pollan about the new book, transformations, and the importance of home cooking.
