The Big SHFT: Alice Waters, Food Revolutionary

  • Meet the the woman who transformed American fine dining

  • Tags:

    Today, Alice Waters is the queen bee of sustainable food movement. But it was flavor, not sustainability, that led the owner of Chez Panisse to local, organic food. Since founding the Berkeley eatery 40 years ago, Alice has helped inspire nothing short of a culinary revolution. These days, you won't find her in the restaurant's kitchen because she is too busy heading up the Chez Panisse Foundation, a non-profit organization that funds The Edible Schoolyard Project, where students at public schools learn to harvest and grow ingredients that are then used in their lunches.

    We visited with Alice to discuss her approach to food, a way of thinking that has transformed the way Americans eat.
