TIME magazine released its annual TIME 100 list, and notable food world folks include New York City chef David Chang (in the "Artists" category) and author/activist Michael Pollan (in the "Thinkers" category). Also, see the Chang profile written by Ruth Reichl: "What he's feeding is an appetite for adventure, and the ride has just begun."; And the Pollan profile by Alice Waters: "Michael's rock-star status isn't just about his rigor or brilliance."
This list also includes Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Kathleen Merrigan (profile written by chef Dan Barber). Martha Stewart was inducted into the TIME 100 Alumnae.
The Least Influential People of 2010 list includes Gourmet Magazine (in the "Losers" category) and... Mayor McCheese?
