Chez Panisse & Modernity

An article in the Stanford newspaper discusses Chez Panisse and its modernity from an academic standpoint. Once you get past the ivory tower lingo, it's an interesting piece on the modern nature of Alice Waters' movement: "Slow Food could only exist as they do within the context of modernity — while they represent an objection to the modern status quo, they also rely on it as a foil to which they can be the 'other.' Their position of rejecting manufactured food exhibits a fundamental awareness of exactly what they are rejecting." Our food for thought: when/if CP and Slow Food cross over into elitist territory—as they've been accused at times—do they still play the aforementioned role of the "other"? [The Stanford Daily]
