Gourmet gulch

Ruth Reichl, editor of Gourmet magazine, wants a high-profile chef in the White House who cooks delicious local food. That may be a fine sentiment for 6 to 8 months out of the year, but has she SEEN what's growing around DC at the moment? If it's local, and a vegetable, it's probably not fresh. That's not to say we shouldn't all strive for local first, but should it be a White House policy issue? I think not.

  1. Alice Waters is an arrogant ditz. She wants us all to eat inside our zip code. That's it for orange juice in Minnesota. She's from New Jersey and should know better. But don't stop her. For me, she's great material.
