Quick, tell me. Where did your steak come from? What was used to make your tomato that bright cherry red—in December? Do you know what they’re planning on feeding domesticated salmon? What’s the most common crop in the United States? If you’re not sure or if you shrugged your shoulders thinking “Who cares?” then this book will have some disturbing, possibly scary, answers for you. Well written, incisive and probing about the provenance of food, Mr. Pollan explores why it’s not so easy to decide what to eat at the table in the modern world.
