It looks like Alice Waters’s culinary regality might not be enough to keep her Slow Food-sowing, local produce-julienning  hands clean.  And Anthony Bourdain might be a trifle intimidated, judging by the speed with which he backpedaled over his earlier digs at Waters. Well, as intimidated as someone who calls anyone else’s letters to the president “wildly hubristic” can be, anyway.  

According to Gothamist–yet another “Ist” blog–Bourdain and Waters are set to duke it out, face to face, at a forum for gourmet heavyweights in May. We certainly look forward to hearing about this one. It promises to be a real ”food fight.” (Ha! Take that, Gothamist! Or … not.) 

Update: More Waters-bashing on NPR.  Wow, things are getting way more intense than we anticipated, up in here.

I just read the “Gothamist” link, and it led me to realize that not only is Bourdain an ostensibly talented chef, but also an obviously talented writer.
