Alice Waters on the Charlie Rose Show
Check it out, if you’ve got a decent internet connection and 22 minutes to spare, you won’t be disappointed. Alice Waters from Chez Panisse is great. Her bit on the “Delicious Revolution” is a nice way to start thinking about the relationship between food and education – engaging students in the process of growing, cooking, and eating food together. Plus, this quote is right up my alley: “Food and nourishment are right at the point where human rights and the environment intersect.” You might also be interested in the Chez Panisse Foundation, which works on integrating food into school curricula and making school lunch a part of the academic curriculum.
