Alice Waters Tells Bill Maher Her Master Cleanse Secrets

Fast food? Fuhgettaboutit.

That "polite wisp of a woman" Alice Waters was on Bill Maher last Friday, just so Bill could make sure everyone understands that "you don't have to be a hippie" to eat like her. Other takeaways from the interview: Alice was originally afraid to be in the kitchen; some naked hippies once streaked through Chez Panisse; Alice has never tried the 'Master Cleanse' combo of lemon and cayenne pepper; and she once tried to steer Bill Clinton away from some blackberry ice cream because she figured he should really be eating a peach instead.


And here's Part 2 of Alice's appearance, in which she shuts Bill up fast when he suggests that McDonald's is sometimes the answer for feeding a poor family.
