While her voice is thin and sometimes quavers, chef/food activist Alice Waters narrates with a lifetime of knowledge, commitment, and passion. Subtitled "A Slow Food Manifesto," this important audiobook provides a cri de coeur for reconsidering why, how, and what we eat. Famed as the grand dame of the farm-to-table movement and for her legendary Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California, Waters defines two food cultures: fast food culture, which offers speed, convenience, availability, and a more-is-better ethos, and slow food culture, which is highlighted by biodiversity, seasonality, stewardship, simplicity, and interconnectedness. Waters is an organic movement icon, and her reminiscences on how her groundbreaking restaurant evolved leaven this thought-provoking work.
