Alice at Aspen, Redux

In a radio interview with Brian Lehrer, Alice Waters shares how she arranged (note the perfect word choice for the sustainable shopper/chef) the dinner at the Aspen Ideas Fest. Then the fluff ends around the 7:30 mark, and Ms. Panisse even gets grilled a bit as they discuss the global food crisis, World Bank food export bans, Waters' good pal Baryshnikov, and the criticisms of Slow Food: "But not everyone could grow their own food, or we'd all be subsistence farmers." Responds AW: "Yes, in fact we could. And there's nothing wrong with subsistence farmers." [WNYC]
