Do you enjoy going to the Farmer’s Market? Do you prefer to buy locally grown, organic ingredients rather than chemically processed food? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you have Alice Waters to thank! Hear her speak at An Evening with Alice Waters during the 2013 All Gaucho Reunion, presented by UCSB Alumni Association and UCSB Arts & Lectures . The event will take place on April 27 at 8 p.m. in Campbell Hall and is definitely one you won’t want to miss!
Credited as the “mother of the local-food movement” (Time magazine), Alice Waters founded the Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley and has become a culinary icon. Her program, The Edible Schoolyard, has helped to teach children across the nation about growing and preparing organic, local food. This program has been extremely influential for public school programs throughout the country, and now you, too, can treat yourself to a mouth-watering discussion on the power and beauty of food.
