Cooked: An Evening with Michael Pollan

7:00 p.m. · Thursday, May 2, 2013 · Beth El Synagogue

5224 West 26th Street · Saint Louis Park, MN 55416

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as world-renowned author Michael Pollan guides our minds and our palates through “a natural history of transformation.”  Michael is the author of six previous books, including Food Rules, In Defense of Food, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and The Botany of Desire–all New York Times bestsellers.  In 2010, Time magazine named Michael one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Exploring the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen, we are inspired by Michael to discover 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.  In doing so, we are altogether more conscious of the world around us.

A portion of the proceeds of this event will go to benefit Appetite for Change, a north Minneapolis non-profit which seeks to build individual, family, and community capacity to use growing, cooking and eating food as vehicles for social change.

Be sure to read AFC Executive Director Michelle Horovitz’s recent sermon on mindful eating and healthier consumption.

Please note: through our partnership with Barnes and Noble Booksellers in Calhoun Village, we will have Michael Pollan’s newest book, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, and others, for sale the evening of the event.

For additional inquiries about the event, please call 952-873-7300.
