In which Her Highness, Alice Waters, talks to Matt Armendariz about her newest book, In The Green Kitchen: Techniques To Learn By Heart. And about today's generation of chefs? "I love these young cooks who are such purists about where they get their ingredients. They go to the farmers’ market rain or shine, they go out to the farm, they’re ready to forage with their friends on the weekend, they are dedicated in a way that my generation certainly wasn’t. And it’s very inspiring. And it’s very political... But we have a whole group at Chez Panisse that is sort of inventing and working on the way of small rather than big, family run restaurants rather than a corporate one and finding that food is part of a wonderful way to love." Mmm. Warm and fuzzy. [MattBites]
