Thanks Michael Pollan, for telling MN Public Radio that you can live on bread alone…

Michael Pollan on MPR

… at least if it’s got some whole grain.  Michael Pollan was on MPR May 2, 2013, with Kerri Miller.  Charming guy, you can listen to the interview (click here).  He was in town to promote his new book Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation.

To our ever-lasting joy, he really focused on bread; that’s where the conversation started.  Long-fermented (like ours), and home-baked. We have lots of whole-grain loaves in Healthy Bread In Five Minutes a Day, while most of our white-flour based breads are in Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Michael, by the way, talked about the value of a little white bread now and then.  Everything in moderation, including moderation.

  1. I actually saw him on Dr. Oz the other day and he mentioned that same thing on there, I was excited! I like him a lot (Michael Pollan that is – Dr. Oz isn’t my favorite), and I especially love the reasons behind his different food philosophies. Yay for long fermented bread! :)

  2. I’ve recently moved into a new house and have just baked my first two loaves in this (electric) oven. Can I tell you how excited I was when both loaves crackled and “sang” as they were cooling? I was never able to achieve that at the old house with the gas oven, with or without the pan of water in the bottom. I didn’t even bother with water today, and just heated a cookie sheet in the oven and dumped my loaf along with the baking mat it was rising on right onto it. Perfection!
