Iconoclasts: Alice Waters and Mikhail Baryshnikov

June 15, 2010

If you didn’t get a chance to see this, a little over a year ago on The Sundance Channel, and you care about artists committed to their vision, go check this out on iTunes.  It’s amazing.  To see Baryshnikov’s rapt admiration for how Waters mentors aspiring chefs at Chez Panisse and his own curiosity about organic, hand-cultivated food, is very cool.  Waters is a trailblazer.  She made us all rethink and reevaluate what we eat and where we get our food from.  And listening to her and hearing her ability to come up with new and exciting ideas, you can see why she’s included in this provacatively titled series.
