Alice Waters Doesn’t Like the Momofuku Milk Bar Book, and Won’t Pretend To

By
This year's Piglet winner!

The Art of Living According to Joe Beef has won the Piglet contest, beating out Christina Tosi's Momofuku Milk Bar. But more interesting is the way Alice Waters, whom Food52 enlisted as the final judge, expresses her unconcealed dislike for both pieces of food lit, prefacing her Piglet wrap-up today by saying, "I am more than a little disappointed in the two finalists." Then she slams the "highly processed" ingredients in the Momofuku recipes. She eventually comes around a little for Joe Beef, seduced by some kale and turnip anecdotes which she reluctantly found easier to swallow. [Food 52]
