What should we have for dinner? When you can eat just about anything nature (or the supermarket) has to offer, deciding what you should eat will inevitably stir anxiety, especially when some of the foods might shorten your life. Today, buffeted by one food fad after another, America is suffering from a national eating disorder. As the cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast food outlet confronts us with a bewildering and treacherous landscape, what's at stake becomes not only our own and our children's health, but the health of the environment that sustains life on earth. Pollan follows each of the food chains--industrial food, organic or alternative food, and food we forage ourselves--from the source to the final meal, always emphasizing our coevolutionary relationship with the handful of plant and animal species we depend on. The surprising answers Pollan offers have profound political, economic, psychological, and even moral implications for all of us.--From publisher description.… (més)

    In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto de Michael Pollan (marzipanz, chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: Less of a narrative than "The Omnivore's Dilemma", "In Defense of Food" is a succinct argument for considering what we eat, and includes potted advice for consumers who prefer a set of simple rules for eating. As the title suggests, this is perhaps the better analysis of the way the food industry affects the eater and what we can do about it.… (més)

    Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life de Barbara Kingsolver (heidialice, lorax)

A nice, thorough look at the food chains we enjoy, but of which we are woefully unaware. While the overall thesis is poignant - we should make ourselves aware of the true cost of our food systems, as our culture's voluntary ignorance is taking a huge toll and is immoral, to say the least - the author's fascination with all things chemical makes sections seem like they belong in a culinary or chemistry textbook (especially true of the first section - corn). As such, the general reader might be put off by the textbook ramblings and fail to notice the gems of information hidden amongst the weeds of loquaciousness. For those interested in a deeper (and more balanced) dive into America's food industries than that provided by FAST FOOD NATION, this is highly recommended. ( )

Eccellente lettura di consapevolezza alimentare e culturale. Scritto come un romanzo coinvolgente, accompagna il lettore in un percorso personale in cui rispecchiarsi. ( )

Mike is a little snooty, but at the same time he makes very important technical information accessible. I come down a little differently on vegetarianism than he does, (he likes hunting wild pigs), but I can be wrong or difficult myself sometimes. (I’ll spare you the story of meat production and the weeping angels, right.) He is very critical of the corn-meat system—not what he calls it; he’s more educated than me or whatever—how we feed meat animals unnatural food (corn instead of grass) because it’s cheaper. He just takes exception to lots of mass produced poor quality unnatural unsatisfying food products, you know. Again, it’s not perfect because he’s just such a pure intellectual that he thinks that getting these things right will by itself make him happy, which has the result of making him snooty. Although, for a snooty person, he’s unusually chummy with family farms and small scale American agriculture. So it’s a nice book. I can be difficult too sometimes, and I’m a great person—that example alone should be compelling, lol. (no emoji—this is serious!).

Extremely vivid detail and very well written. ( )

But for Pollan, the final outcome is less important than the meal's journey from the soil to the plate. His supermeticulous reporting is the book's strength — you're not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from.
