In his previous books, Michael Pollan composed respectively "an eater's manifesto" (In Defense of Food), "a natural history of four meals" (The Omnivore's Dilemma), "an eater's manual" (Food Rules), and "a plant's-eye view of the world" (The Botany of Desire). In this new offering, he ventures into the alchemical realm of his kitchen, the place where the transformative powers of fire, water, air, and earth change the stuff of the natural world into meals we eat and crave. As in earlier works, Pollan takes what seems to be a subject close at hand (or even at mouth) and makes it fascinating in ways we never suspected.
