Author MIchael Pollan takes the reader through his quest to answer the very basic question we ask ourselves every day of the week, "What should we eat for dinner?" His fascinating journey through the American food system covers every nook and cranny including supermarkets, fast food restaurants, food factories, labs, farms and hunting grounds. Pollan's Natural History of Four Meals questions the very way we eat and how it affects the current state of our health and environment, and what that means for generations to come.
