Several of you have shouted down from the virtual crow’s nest that Joe Pastry’s favorite white whale, Michael Pollan, is back and actively promoting his new mini-book, Food Rules. I haven’t read it yet, but I will sometime soon and respond to it. If you haven’t heard about Food Rules yet, it is a short book (purse and/or pocket-sized, so you can carry it around with you wherever you go), a compendium of 64 rules pertaining to what/how/where/when you should eat. For the sheer number of dietary restrictions, Pollan seems to be outpacing the world’s major religions. But what the heck, I’m open-minded. This should be fun!
