Winner announcement: Congratulations to kristenschenck2, the winner of our Michael Pollan contest, who wrote: "Trying to eat ground beef after reading Omnivore's Dilemma is like trying to swim in the ocean after seeing JAWS." Kristen, we'll send you an e-mail about how you can get your tickets.
Michael Pollan has been called, among other titles, a "food god" (true), more recently a "sexist pig" (false) and a "warrior" (depends on your definition), and in this week's Chef and Tell piece, I interview Pollan, who discusses the American diet, what we eat and how we should eat. He even includes a shout-out to homegrown Chipotle, a quick-service Mexican joint that, applauds, Pollan, "has taken big steps to source their meat -- or at least their pork -- sustainably and, in many places, locally. They're trying to walk the talk."
