In Defence of Food: Michael Pollan (author) in conversation with Sue Kedgley MP and Annabel Langbein (chef) - hosted by The Green Party.

A scintillating evening with three people capable of seeing the big picture when it comes to food. You should not miss this opportunity to hear what Michael, Sue and Annabel think about one of the most important issues today.

Food is more than the three squares and diet, there is an emerging politics of food.

Michael Pollan’s hugely influential bestseller The Omnivore’s Dilemma traced a direct line between the industrialisation of food and degradation of the environment, and asked searching questions about the value of organics.

In Defence of Food cuts straight to the chase with a maxim that is deceptively simple: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”

Sue Kedgley has a deserved reputation for advocacy in the area of food and food safety. Annabel Langbein needs no introduction as a chef (she has worked professionally in the kitchen for the last twenty years ) but she is much more she combines being a cook with helping people make the right food choices, environmentally, nutritionally and economically.

Michael Pollan is the author, most recently, of In Defence of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto. His previous book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (2006), was named one of the ten best books of 2006 by The New York Times and the Washington Post.

Pollan served for many years as executive editor of Harper’s Magazine and is now the Knight Professor of Science and Environmental Journalism at UC Berkeley. He lives in California.
