Shark Free is the Way to be: Alice Waters Vows to Skip the Shark Fin Soup

Alice Waters found herself in some hot water following our May 14th Forum, Food for Thought, when she shared that she would like her last meal to be shark fin soup.

This surprised fellow Food for Thought panelists Anthony Bourdain and Duff Goldman as Alice is best known as the revolutionary leader of the Slow Food movement. "That's not local," chuckled Bourdain.

But, there is some good news for sharks around the globe this weekend, as the New York Times has reported that Alice recently signed a No Shark Fin pledge, promising to never to consume or serve shark fin soup or any product containing shark fin.
