Slow Food "Master" and Legend Appears on 60 Minutes

"Leader", "Visionary", "Master", "Legend", "Hero"... Check out this amazing clip of Alice Waters, world-renowned chef, author and owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant and Café in California, on 60 minutes. She has been preaching the virtues of cultivating fresh food for decades and is committed to promoting the availability of healthy, organic, fresh food for all.
At her bistro, the menu changes daily in order to showcase the finest local, organic ingredients available each season. Alice wants her guests to feel as though they are at a dinner party when they come to her restaurant; she wants them to truly take their time and enjoy everything that food has to offer. Her hope is that a slower approach to the food we eat will keeps us healthier and greener over all. Alice is a strong believer in the "transformative power of growing, cooking, and sharing food".
