As in his previous books, Michael Pollan argues in "Cooked" that relying on processed food disrupts our link to the natural world and weakens our interpersonal relationships. But this time he takes a more hands-on approach, doing apprenticeships with a variety of culinary masters who teach him the fine points of fermentation, the benefits of bacteria, and other secrets of honest cuisine. He joins us in the studio.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Michael Pollan, professor of journalism at UC Berkeley and author of "Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation"
