Alice Waters

Chef, Restaurateur, Activist, and Author

Originally from Chatham, New Jersey, Alice moved to California for college in 1964 where she was influenced by anti-war movement, and by a book by Frances Moore Lappe, Diet for a Small Planet.  After studying  in France where she was impressed by how food was ingrained in their culture, she moved back to Berkeley and opened Chez Pansise in 1971.  She founded the Chez Panisse Foundation in 1996, and created the Edible Schoolyard program at the Martin Luther King Middle School in Berkeley, California.  In 2005, the Chez Panisse Foundation started an affiliate program to demonstrate the universality of an edible education.
