A Gourmet Q&A

We're unashamed fans of Michael Pollan around here, so it when I came across this Q&A with him on Gourmet's website, sharing it was a no-brainer. Pollan is doing the interview rounds talking about his new book, In Defense of Food (currently sitting on my nightstand awaiting a few hours of spare time), and in this particular interview talks about the inspiration for the new book, why cliche's about food matter, and uh... apparently how to survive on a diet of primarily whale blubber. Well worth the read - after all, you never know when you'll be stuck in the arctic wilderness with nothing but a whale carcass.

It was an excellent read - not as big a bite as The Omnivore's Dilemma, but just as informative and accessible. If this was enjoyable, I recommend also checking out Marion Nestle's What to Eat, which covers similar territory, but more from a nutritionist's perspective (one of the reputable ones).
