If Ms. Tomato could reorder the universe and choose fresh DNA...she would opt for the legacies of Alice Waters and Michael Pollan. That way, she would spend her early years happily cavorting in the gardens of Chez Panisse, then grow up to be an iconoclastic farmer's friend and bestselling food politics author. Listen to Pollan interviewed by the excellent Bill Moyers as he discusses the current alternative food economy, in which The People take the food power back from the Monsanto's of the world.
