Water sommelier

The amazing thing about Harrisburg is that everything gets here a few years later than it gets to anywhere else.

When the world ends, for instance, we should have 24 to 30 months advance notice.

So it is with water.

In the spring, Sara Bozich wrote about the emerging trend of (gasp) multiple choices of bottled water to go with different courses of a meal.

Now some guy at Time magazine says bottled water is no longer cool. The cool restaurants are serving tap water. Go figure.

Then he has lunch with a water sommelier.

    Bottled water is an environmental travisty!!!

    It sort of is, actually. With all the talk about food miles, it seems ridiculous to buy water which was flown in from Italy or France.

    I heard a piece on NPR not long ago saying that Alice Waters decided to get rid of the bottled water at Chez Panisse. They just use tap water and if people want seltzer, they carbonate it at the restaurant (possibly with one of these).

    There was a story in the New York Times on this about a two months ago. Chez Panisse isn’t the only restaurant carbonating their tap water; I just can’t remember any of the others.
