Slow down, says Alice Waters, the food-world force behind the legendary Chez Panisse restaurant and the Edible Schoolyard organization. As Alice explains in her latest book, “We Are What We Eat: A Slow Food Manifesto,” the world of fast food and disposable everything is not the way forward for mankind or the planet. Alice joins us from her home in Berkeley, California, to share her point of view, reminisce about the 50th anniversary of Chez Panisse, and reveal a few details about the restaurant project she’s working on in Los Angeles. It’s not Chez 2.0, she stresses. Fanny Singer, Alice’s daughter, author of the memoir “Always Home,” and co-founder of the design brand Permanent Collection, joins host Kerry Diamond for the second part of the show. Fanny talks about her lovingly written book and the project she’s curated for Absolut Art that celebrates her favorite room in any house—the kitchen.
