WATCH: Why Won’t David Bouley Reveal What’s In His Vegetable Garden?
David Bouley appeared on CBS This Morning today to discuss how he’s taking a healthy turn with his classic French cuisine by adopting some of Kyoto’s kaiseki cooking techniques and applying its ideas of balance and seasonality to his dishes.
He enthusiastically recounted how he farmed his own vegetables all summer for his own personal use and learned a great deal about how to craft more nutrient-dense meals. But when Gayle King asked what he grew, he dodged the question by talking about soil.
She pressed for an answer about what he grew in his garden, but he squirmed out of it again (and not gracefully) by saying that he couldn’t choose just one. The woman isn’t asking you to sacrifice one of your children, dude. She’s asking what you plant in your garden. Why all the deceit?
