The best-selling author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Michael Pollan discusses the enduring power of the four classical elements—earth, air, water and fire—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Pollan celebrates the special place that cooking occupies in human life, standing squarely between nature and culture. He examines how cooking involves us in an intricate web of social and ecological relationships—with the soil, plants and animals, history and culture, the farmers who provide our sustenance and the friends and family whom we choose to serve.
