Vegetable Martyr Dan Barber Wants Vegetarians to Get Off ‘High Horse’

He's over it.

Despite the extraordinary value placed on vegetables at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Dan Barber — vegetable innovator/eater and overall delightful person — has no interest in the "self-righteous vegetarian." He tells The Wall Street Journal, "Butchering and eating animals may not be called kindness, but eating soy burgers that rely on pesticides and fertilizers precipitates destruction too. You don't have to eat meat, but you should have the good judgment to relinquish the high horse." Locavorism, he's still in love with. [WSJ]
