Alice Waters on the future

Chef, restaurateur, food writer and food activist extraordinaire Alice Waters offered these thoughts at Terra Madre, a Slow Food event in Turin in 2006:

I believe that the destiny of humankind in the twenty-first century will depend most of all on how people choose to nourish themselves. And if we can educate these senses, and break down the wall of ignorance between farmers and eaters, I am convinced — because I have seen it with my own eyes time and again — people will inevitably choose the sustainable way, which is always the most delicious alternative.

—quoted in Alice Waters and Chez Panisse by Thomas McNamee
