I love documentaries. I love reading. I love Michael Pollan’s latest Netflix documentary series and best-selling book, “Cooked“. It connects people to the origins of food and cooking: nature and culture. Pollan reflects on the impact people have on both people and the planet by reclaiming the kitchen. The effect of even the smallest efforts in the kitchen are far reaching on relationships, health, industry, skills, environment, ethics, animals, fulfillment and achievement. The good news for people like me? You don’t even have to be a “good” cook. Just start.
“For is there any practice less selfish, any labor less alienated, any time less wasted, than preparing something delicious and nourishing for people you love?” – Michael Pollan
This is why I cook.
