As one of the most influential and well-known food activists and chefs around the world, Alice Waters has positively touched so many lives through her humanitarian work and pioneering in local and organic cuisine (we count ourselves as several of her most inspired and devoted followers). Whether it is by reading one of her numerous books, dining in her Bay Area restaurant Chez Panisse, or touring her Edible Schoolyard Project grounds, it is easy to grasp Waters’ determination to spread health and values through the foods we eat.
So, in light of the recent release of her latest book, 40 Years of Chez Panisse: The Power of Gathering, why not celebrate the joy of healthy and local eating by cooking a homemade meal for the ones you love?
Above: 40 Years of Chez Panisse: The Power of Gathering is available to order on Amazon.
