If you're anything like me, you've already watched all the food documentaries that Netflix has to offer. From "The Search for General Tso"to "Fed Up," each one leaves me with newfound perspective and knowledge. Quite the win for a lazy afternoon in front of the television, I’d say!

But just like mid-afternoon hunger pangs, the craving for more always returns. Fortunately, more courses are on the way: Next month Netflix is releasing a four-part series based on Michael Pollan's popular 2013 book, "Cooked."

The show is set to debut on February 19 under the same familiar name as his popular book. Each of the four episodes will focus on one of the four elements — fire, water, earth, and air — and how it has impacted food and culture throughout history.

In true Pollan style, of course, the ultimate message will be to take what you learn and apply it at home. We're not necessarily arguing for fire-roasting monitor lizards in the backyard, but you'll certainly be headed toward a richer life by cooking more meals at home.
