Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation

In Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, best-selling author Michael Pollan takes a tour of the most time-tested cooking techniques, from southern whole-hog barbecue and slow-cooked ragus to sourdough baking and pickle making. “Ultimately, he makes the case that cooking is a political act, one that declares our resistance to the ‘learned helplessness’ that the food industry likes to insist requires an outsourcing of dinner. ‘To cook for the pleasure of it,’ he writes, ‘to devote a portion of our leisure to it, is to declare our independence from the corporations seeking to organize our every waking moment into yet another occasion for consumption.’” —Washington Post
