3/10/08: In Defense of Food

New York Times Magazine food writer Michael Pollan
New York Times Magazine food writer Michael Pollan

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Years ago, writer and journalist Michael Pollan changed his diet with a simple garden and a few basic rules like eating your veggies and avoiding foods with unrecognizable ingredients. His most recent book is In Defense of Food and in it, Pollan says that what we're eating today isn't food at all and that the way we're consuming it isn't actually eating. Pollan is coming to Utah, and Monday he joins Doug for a look at the out of control American diet.

This Thursday, March 13 at 7:00 p.m., Michael Pollan will speak as part of the Utah Museum of Natural History's Nature of Things lecture series. The event is at Abravanel Hall, and tickets are available by calling 801-355-ARTS (2787). For more information, click here.
