It's what's for supper.
Michael Pollan will discuss his new book, "Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation" at 8 p.m. May 13 at Benaroya Hall in Seattle.
In writing "Cooked," Pollan discovered the enduring power of the classical elements of fire, water, air and earth. He apprenticed with culinary masters to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread and ferment foods such as cheese, kimchi and beer.
Other books by Pollan include "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "Food Rules."
Pollan, a journalist, author, teacher and activist, has been called a "liberal foodie intellectual." In 2010, Time Magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Ticket start at $24. A $125 private reception package includes a center orchestra seat and private reception with Pollan.
Tickets are available through the Benaroya Hall Box Office, at 206-215-4747 or online at www.benaroyahall.org.
