Alice Waters, chef, author, social entrepreneur, and proprietor of Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California, is a pioneer of a culinary philosophy based on using only the freshest organic products, served only in season. In 1996, Waters' commitment to education led to the creation of The Edible Schoolyard, a one-acre garden with an adjacent kitchen classroom at Berkeley's Martin Luther King, Jr., Middle School. The Edible Schoolyard is a model public education program that actively involves up to 1,000 students in all aspects of the food cycle, thereby helping them gain the knowledge and values they need to build a humane and sustainable future.

Waters is vice president of Slow Food International, a nonprofit that promotes and celebrates local artisanal food traditions and has 100,000 members in more than 130 countries. Among her many honors and awards are:

  • Honorary Doctor of Humanities, Princeton University, 2009
  • Co-recipient with Kofi Anan, Global Environmental Citizen Award, 2008
  • Lifetime Achievement Award, Restaurant magazine's World's 50 Best Restaurants, 2007
  • Best Restuarant in America, Gourmet magazine, 2001

THE EVENT IS GENEROUSLY FUNDED BY:
