The RSA May 30, 2013
This is an unedited version of the talk that Michael Pollan did at the RSA yesterday. Unfortunately, due to technical problems the very beginning of the live stream was missed but the usual edited video of our event will be available in a couple of weeks.
Renowned activist and author Michael Pollan argues that cooking is one of the simplest and most important steps people can take to improve their family’s health, build communities, fix our broken food system, and break our growing dependence on corporations.
Chaired by Tim Lang, professor of Food Policy at City University London.
