International movement opposing fast food and promoting dining as a source of pleasure.
A fun, hip site full of eco-friendly tips and resources good for people and the planet.
By Michael Pollan. In this runaway bestseller, Pollan, a brilliant progressive professor of Journalism at Berkeley, follows different meals- one fast food, one organic, one small-scale local agriculture, and one he hunts and gathers himself- through the food chain. By analyzing how food is grown, packaged, shipped and produced he covers the gamut of social, cultural, environmental and physical health issues related to how food is produced and consumed.The success of this book and the number of people reading it provides as much hope as the fact that George Bush’s ratings have finally dropped.
