Alice Waters Cooks Up a Food Revolution

Whenever young Alice Waters tasted something delicious, like the sun-warmed berries from her family’s garden or a crisp, ripe apple picked straight from the tree, she would remember it for the rest of her life. Later, as she tasted many more wonderful foods, she realized what made them so good — they were fresh and ripe, grown or made the old-fashioned way.

When Alice grew up, she opened a restaurant called Chez Panisse. As part of her quest to make delicious food, Alice sought out small, local farmers to provide the meat, dairy, and produce. The restaurant made her famous, but it did much more than that — it started a food revolution. Today, home cooks and chefs alike are all discovering the simple secret to the Best! Food! Ever! This picture book from the team behind the acclaimed Ada Lovelace, Poet of Science is a celebration of food, cooking, and the woman whose curiosity and devotion to flavor kickstarted America’s interest in buying local, organic food.

Description

"Stanley starts with Waters’s early delight in the strawberries from her family’s garden ('The taste thrills her to the bone') and her disappointment with the convenience food her family switches to in the winter ('It’s modern! It’s easy!'). A university year in France in the 1960s shows Alice that good food doesn’t have to be expensive.... While eating in upscale restaurants may not be on every family’s menu, Waters’s one-woman crusade to eat locally and seasonally resonates to this day — and throughout this straightforward picture book biography." — Publishers Weekly
