Michael Pollan has been writing about food, agriculture, and gardens for the past twenty years, exploring the ecology of eating to unveil why we consume what we consume in the twenty-first century. His recent bestseller, In Defense of Food, highlights his simple manifesto – “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Pollan’s bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives, expand our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating.

He is the author of the bestselling book The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post. Also an activist and a Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley, Pollan is a contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine and has been awarded the California Book Award, Northern California Book Award, the James Beard Award for best food writing, and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

“Michael Pollan [is the] designated repository for the nation’s food conscience.” –The New York Times
