Globe and Mail interview with Michael Pollan

The Globe recently pubished an interview with Michael Pollan, author of the Omnivore’s Dilemma about the growing public oppinion war against the food movement.

…the food movement has many pieces. And there are also many efforts to democratize it–to bring farmers’ markets into the city and offer vouchers to the poor so they can buy food at the farmers’ market. To teach cooking classes in the inner city where the culture of cooking has been particularly undermined. So there are many elements. The Slow Food organization is a great example. It celebrates beautiful and expensive food but is also involved in getting gardens into schools, to make it possible for more people to benefit from the food.
