Madison is excited to welcome Michael Pollan from University of California, Berkeley, to our city for three days this weekend!   This visit is sponsored by the University of Wisconsin’s Center for the Humanities and also comes as a part of the Food for Thought festival.  I am continuously intrigued and educated by reading Michael’s opinions on food, the affect of higher fructose in our diets (i.e. diabetes!) and what nutritional information to trust (and not trust).  We will be attending Michael’s session tomorrow night at the Kohl Center, 7pm on September 24th.

“Thirty years of nutritional advice have left us fatter, sicker, and more poorly nourished. Which is why we find ourselves in the predicament we do: in need of a whole new way to think about eating.”  Michael Pollan

Then on Friday morning I am off to San Francisco to attend the BlogHer Conference in San Francisco.  It will be exciting to meet all of the talented food bloggers whom I have been reading for quite some time, such as The Pioneer Woman, White on Rice, Steamy Kitchen, and more!  In addition to a day full of sessions and work, I am looking forward to having a bit of wine and fun…and will hope to return with pictures and stories too.

Happy cooking to all!  Come back soon to see what’s new with me (and Sharecipe!).
