Alice Waters

Founder, Chez Panisse

Alice WatersWhere do those eggs on your plate come from? Were the chickens cage free?

These answers have become increasingly important to Americans in recent years. Who are some of the pioneers who used local, seasonal ingredients in restaurants before it was “in?”

Jessica’s guest is one such restaurateur, Alice Waters. Alice is the founder of Chez Panisse in Berkeley California, and the Edible Schoolyard, a foundation that pushes for food education in the nation’s public schools.

Alice describes how she’s trying to change the way Americans eat, from scratch.
