Michael Pollan at HVCC

michael pollanFood writer/thinker Michael Pollan will be giving a talk at HVCC October 25 at 7:30 pm. It's open to public -- tickets are $35 and go on sale Tuesday (September 20).

You probably know Pollan from his book The Omnivore's Dilemma (or, at least, from the hype/discussion from that book). Its basic theme is that our diets and farming have been subverted by the modern industrial food complex. His boiled-down advice: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." Pollan's ubiquity in the foodie-world has also prompted a bit of criticism, mostly that he's elitist.

If you're interested in going to the talk at HVCC, you should probably buy tickets next week. We wouldn't be surprised if it sold out.

Loved him in 'Life of Brian'.

"Don't eat anything that is incapable of rotting." -Just one of many awesome Michael Pollan quotes. Love him!
