Alice Waters, of Chez Panisse: “I call it a delicious revolution.”

I’ve been reading “Alice Waters and Chez Panisse,” by Thomas McNamee, the rollicking biography of local-slow-food-edible-schoolyard pioneer Alice Waters and the messy, organic, anarchic, and always wildly creative and alive restaurant that she started in 1971 and inspired a food revolution that is not only still unfolding, but showing signs of decimating the best-laid plans of corporate agriculture.

Alice shows us the intended and unintended consequences of actually following your dream: no matter what challenges it presents, what serendipities drop in your lap, what conflicts develop, what changes are not only endured, but welcomed, every single day.
