Description
(Winner of the 2007 James Beard Award for Best Food Writing and one of the New York Times's Ten Best Books of 2006) Before In Defense of Food and Food Rules, Michael Pollan introduced the omnivore's dilemma as "what should we have for dinner?" It's a simple question with dizzyingly complex repercussions. From soil to table, Pollan follows three food chains that sustain us—industrialized food, alternative or "organic" food, and food that is hunted, gathered, or gardened by individuals—culminating in a fully analyzed meal.

"Every time you go into a grocery store you are voting with your dollars, and what goes into your cart has real repercussions on the future of the earth, but although we have choices, few of us are aware of exactly what they are. Michael Pollan's beautifully written book could change that. He tears down the walls that separate us from what we eat, and forces us to be more responsible eaters. Reading this book is a wonderful, life-changing experience."—Ruth Reichl
