This Live Event and Webcast takes place tonight from 7:00 to 9:00 pm (Pacific Time).
The Live Event at Zellerbach Auditorium of UC Berkeley is sold out.
It will start with a multimedia presentation on the topic by John Mackey (CEO of Whole Foods) who will then be joined by Michael Pollan to continue the exchange they started after the author's publication of The Omnivore's Dilemma.

The Observer Food Monthly offered its own take on The Future of Food late last year.
The introduction "Imagine a world where liquid nitrogen is a kitchen must have and your food gets cooked in a vacuum sealed bag..." sets the stage.
My guess is that tonight's presentation will be more down to earth or less futuristic if you prefer.
