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.
