Michael Pollan in Conversation with Ronit Vered. Special Guest: Hedai Offaim

Last Call: A series of meetings that will address the most pressing issues and hottest topics of our times. Festival writers will discuss climate change, artificial intelligence and fake news, and consider how these all affect literary works.

Author and journalist Prof. Michael Pollan (USA) is one of the most important scholars of food culture in the world (Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World). His works have transformed the way in which we think about eating and how food gets to our plates. Pollan will join Haaretz Magazine food writer Ronit Vered for a conversation on the production and consumption of food in an era that moves between the local and the global in the shadow of climate change and the coronavirus crisis.


At the end of the conversation with Pollan, chef and farmer Hedai Offaim will join Ronit Vered to talk about cooking in the spirit of Pollan and present particularly intriguing dishes made from a limited number of local ingredients—white shakshuka and “summer and winter” salad.


  • The conversation will take place in English.
  • The conversation will take place live on Facebook.
  • No registration required.
