In i Cooked i Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen Here he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements fire water air and earth to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters Pollan learns how to grill with fire cook with liquid bake bread and ferment everything from cheese to beer In the course of his journey he discovers that the cook occupies a special place in the world standing squarely between nature and culture Both realms are transformed by cooking and so in the process is the cook .

Each section of i Cooked i tracks Pollan s effort to master a single classic recipe using one of the four elements A North Carolina barbecue pit master tutors him in the primal magic of fire a Chez Panisse trained cook schools him in the art of braising a celebrated baker teaches him how air transforms grain and water into a fragrant loaf of bread and finally several mad genius fermentos a tribe that includes brewers cheese makers and all kinds of picklers reveal how fungi and bacteria can perform the most amazing alchemies of all The reader learns alongside Pollan but the lessons move beyond the practical to become an investigation of how cooking involves us in a web of social and ecological relationships with plants and animals the soil farmers our history and culture and of course the people our cooking nourishes and delights Cooking above all connects us .
