Shh! Alice Waters

alice.jpgWhen Amos Watts, chef at Jax Denver, was asked what chef he thinks should shut up in today's Westword "Chef & Tell," Watts had a heartfelt answer: Alice Waters. "While I appreciate her 'eat local' message, it's too over-reaching. Talk to people who are really suffering right now because of the terrible economy, and try telling them that they have to cook seasonally and locally. That's not easy to do when you're feeding kids on 30 cents. The impression that I get when I listen to her, or when I read things that she's said, is that if you don't agree with her -- or see it her way -- you're stupid." [Westword]
