Slow Food Debate Goes Viral

View Comments (


    Alive Waters speaks for the importance of the organic food movement.

    Finally, some video footage from last week's roundtable discussion between Alice Waters, Anthony Bourdain and Duff Goldman.

    While A-Dubs holds her own in the back-and-forth, you can almost see Bourdain trying to bite his tongue.

    The crux of the Bourdain's argument: "As a chef, I'm not your dietitian or your ethicist. I'm in the pleasure business.My responsibility is to give you the best-tasting tomato, not the most cruelty-free tomato ... My responsibility is to give you the most delicious tomato that I can afford, given the circumstances, and maybe increase the likelihood that you get laid after dinner."
