In the Kitchen with Alice Waters

What would it be like to have Alice Waters come over to cook lunch for you? Well, we would probably have a full-body asthma attack, but the New York Times who lucked out with the opportunity merely fussed over her two cans of Diet Pepsi and wondered if she should hide her box of Kellogg's Raisin Bran.

She also got to tag along with Waters as the food activist shopped at Union Square's Greenmarket. Also discussed: Waters' new book, The Art of Simple Food: Notes, Lessons and Recipes From a Delicious Revolution (Clarkson Potter, 2007), which she describes as not just an instructional guide, but an attempt, through recipes, to "save the American food supply." No need to draft our pots and pans—where do we sign up? ::The New York Times
