Very Rich People Can Bid on a Chez Panisse Lunch With Michael Pollan

Michael Pollan talks about his new "Food Rules" book at the Strathmore before his presentation there on October 26, 2011, in Rockville, MD.  The new illustrated version of his popular book "Food Rules" - called Food Rules: An Eater's Manual" - comes out Nov 1.  Michael Pollan's Food Rules began with his hunch that the wisdom of our grandparents might have more helpful things to say about how to eat well than the recommendations of science or industry or government. The result was a slim volume of food wisdom that has forever changed how we think about food. Now in a new edition illustrated by artist Maira Kalman, and expanded with a new introduction and nineteen additional food rules, this hardcover volume marks an advance in the national dialogue that Food Rules inspired.
