Cooked Trailer: Michael Pollan Plus Alex Gibney Plus Food Porn!

By

Godfather of eat-what-your-great-grandmother-ate thinking Michael Pollan joins Going Clear documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney for a new Netflix docuseries called Cooked. Similar to his book and subsequent PBS movie The Botany of Desire, which looked at food and food history through the lens of four plants, Cooked will be split into four sections along the elements fire, water, air, and earth. If the good Planeteer inside of you is screaming, Where's the heart? Pollan has that running throughout: "Is there any practice less selfish, any time less wasted than preparing something delicious for the people you love?" Cooked will be available for streaming on Netflix February 19.
