Watch Dan Barber Explain His Food Philosophy

CBS News visits to chef Dan Barber's award-winning farm and restaurant Blue Hill at Stone Barns in upstate New York to introduce the middle of the country to the concept of farm-to-table. Barber gets a little bit emotional about peas and then explains the concept (and title of his book) "The Third Plate... [is] a metaphor for a way of eating for the future, a radical re-look at our expectations for dinner." He explains why he rarely has tomatoes on the menu: "If you think of soil as a bank account and you're eating a tomato, a tomato is like the Hummer of the vegetable and fruit world." Go watch Barber explain more about the earth's limited bank account:
