Bittman on Waters

Mark Bittman responds to Alice Waters' request for a $27 billion food bailout: "There is a tendency among all of us who work with food regularly to become more than a little precious about it. (Whenever you start discussing which kind of salt you’re using, or which variety of beet you prefer, watch out.) And when we do, we forget that most people in the United States neither know nor care about such things, and that a large percentage of those are not, in general, eating well." [NYT, previously]
