Michael Pollan has a new documentary series out called “Cooked”.  It’s a 4 part series with each episode focusing on one of the natural elements (fire, earth, water, and air) and how they’re used in cooking.

It’s very informative and it presents ideas that may go against some of your beliefs.  For instance, there is a piece on gluten that explains how gluten today is not at all what it used to be and suggest that maybe the real bad guy is the processing involved with gluten and not the gluten itself. Whether you agree or not, it’s always healthy and educational to acknowledge other perspectives.

Overall, the idea seems to be to reconnect us with the lost art of cooking and to develop a more meaningful connection with the food and techniques involved in cooking them to restore balance and nourishment into our lives.
