Michael Pollan has changed the way people talk and think about food. This week, he shares his food rules. Sommelier Stacie Hunt created a wine club available only to Good Food subscribers.

Food writer Michael Pollan once advised "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." Now, he tells us how to cook it.
