... in a world where so few of us are obliged to cook at all anymore to choose to do so is to lodge a protest against specialisation, against the total rationalisation of life, against the infiltration of commercial interests into every last cranny of our lives. To cook for the pleasure of it, to devote a portion of our leisure to it is to declare our independence from the corporations seeking to organise our every waking moment into yet another occasion of consumption. -  Michael Pollen 'Cooked'
