Chef and activist Alice Waters celebrates 50 years of slow food movement


After studying abroad in France at age 19, chef, author and food activist Alice Waters was inspired by the family-run restaurants she visited to create her own locally-sourced eatery, the legendary Chez Panisse, 50 years ago. Waters talked with NBC’s Harry Smith about her new book, “We Are What We Eat: A Slow Food Manifesto,” and the impact of mass-produced food on the environment and people’s health.
