I do feel strongly that all the serious problems we face today, every one of them, at their very core, are fundamentally connected to food. 

Alice Waters is the founder and owner of the influential Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, California, famous for its organic, locally-grown ingredients and for pioneering California cuisine.

For more than four decades she has been a proponent of local, sustainable agriculture and organic food. Waters founded the Edible Schoolyard Project, which advocates for free school lunches and sustainable food curriculum in public schools, and is vice president of Slow Food International.

Her books include The Art of Simple Food and 40 Years of Chez Panisse: The Power of Gathering.
