Giles Coren vs Cooked by Michael Pollan

Giles Coren was on enjoyably caustic form reviewing gastro-philosopher Michael Pollan’s Cooked for The Times:

And he does it in that way that is peculiar to stalwarts of The New York Times bestseller list (on which Cooked made it to No 1), with a style that hitches ceaseless repetition of the toweringly obvious to misgrasped gobbets of popular philosophy and endless rhetorical questions.”
