This presentation for UC Berkeley professor and food researcher Michael Pollan (he wrote The Omnivore’s Dilemma) discusses the importance of cooking at home and how it effects health and diet. This is very intriguing because it highlights how marketing, corporations, and mass production made cooking seem like a burden rather than a necessity. It is seen as something that can be easily outsourced–by chefs, restaurants, and fast food joints. He argues that health doesn’t come from what you eat or where you get it from, but just by cooking something by yourself. Self production is the key.
