Food Rules: an Eater’s Manual by Michael Pollan

Michael Pollan’s Food Rules began with his hunch that the wisdom of our grandparents might have more helpful things to say about how to eat well than the recommendations of science or industry or government.  The result was a slim volume of food wisdom that has forever changed how we think about food.  Now in a new edition illustrated by artist Maira Kalman, and expanded with a new introduction additional food rules, this volume marks an advance in the national dialogue that Food Rules inspired.

Several of the new rules  — Place a bouquet of flowers on the table and everything will taste twice as good; If you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple, you’re probably not hungry  –underscore the central teaching of the original Food Rules, which is that eating doesn’t have to be so complicated, and food is as much about pleasure and communion as it is about nutrition and health.
