Book Beginnings: Cooked

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation by Michael Pollan
"At a certain point in the late middle of my life I made the unexpected but happy discovery that the answer to several of the questions that most occupied me was in fact one and the same. Cook."

I don't cook much at all, but my husband does and we both love Michael Pollan's books. I don't think "Cook" is going to be the answer to any questions in my life, but I can appreciate that it is for others.

I have never read any of Pollan's books but I like the concept of Cooked, finding the answers you seek by following what you love to do. Thanks for sharing!
Happy Reading,
Rebecca

The opening definitely made me curious and I'd read more to find out what he has to say. I haven't read any of Pollan's books, but I'll look into them now.
Here's the link to my Friday post: DARLIN' IRISH.

I enjoy cooking on some occasions, but I agree with you, I don't think "Cook" is the answer to any of my life questions ha ha! Hopping over from the Book Beginnings link-up party

I don't know this author, but I do love books about cooking. Is this a cookbook? I may be misinterpreting.

THANKS for sharing....it sounds good.

It's not a cookbook, it's a book about food and the author does cook but it's more about the process and science than recipes.
