Michael Pollan really wants you to cook
(CNN) -- Michael Pollan has one request: Can we please get back in the kitchen? In his recently released Netflix series, "Cooked," Pollan tells the story of cooking and how it makes us uniquely human."When we learned to cook is when we became truly human," he says. The four-part series is full of beautiful images of exotic locales and families gathering, and close-ups of lovingly prepared meats and breads. It's based on the four classicial elements: fire, water, earth, air. Pollan points out that each is a method of cooking.
