The High Cost Of Being A Foodie [10.05.09]

If there is a mecca for American foodies, it's probably Chez Panisse, Alice Waters' successful restaurant in Berkeley, Calif. As a college student at UC Berkeley, Samin Nosrat saved money for a year to eat one dinner there. It was love at first bite. Samin landed a job as a buser, and worked her way up to line cook. When her mentor, the head chef at Chez Panisse for 16 years, decided to open a restaurant a couple of miles away, she became his sous chef. Also in the show: Elections in Minnesota and Afghanistan.
