UPDATE: This event has sold out.
Best-selling author Michael Pollan is coming to Durham next month to promote his new book, “Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation.”
Pollan, who previously wrote “The Omnivore’s Dilemma,” will be speaking at 7:30 p.m. April 27 at Motorco Music Hall in Durham. The event costs $30 and include a copy of the book and two passes to the book reading. Pollan will sign books after the event and additional copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event. The event is being organized by The Regulator Bookshop in Durham.
Joining Pollan on stage for a conversation will be chefs Billy Cotter of Toast in Durham and James Beard winner Andrea Reusing of Lantern in Chapel Hill. Pollan’s new book is about his “efforts to master a single basic recipe using one of four classical elements: fire, water, air, and earth.” North Carolina barbecue pitmaster Ed Mitchell gives Pollan a lesson on cooking over fire.
The event also will include food trucks outside serving dinner and beer and wine for purchase inside Motorco.
Tickets to the event can be bought online: motorcomusic.com/michael-pollan. Tickets also can be purchased at The Regulator and Motorco during business hours.
