Editorial Reviews

Review

“Waters makes a convincing case that the act of eating is political, with powerful effects on the future of the planet.” TIME

“Waters, legendary chef and founder of Berkeley’s Chez Panisse, delivers an impassioned manifesto on how food and its quality impacts society and the planet . . . She offers cogent, well-reasoned analyses of the price of convenience, blind trust in advertising, and cheapness, all of which seduce 'us into losing our desire, confidence, and ability to do things for ourselves.' Highly convincing and incredibly inspiring, Waters' fervent entreaty is sure to open eyes and change minds.”
Publishers Weekly

“This beautiful book speaks to the values we need to embrace at this moment in human history: Stewardship, diversity, interconnectedness, simplicity, balance. Reading it has inspired me to do things differently. It will inspire you as well.”
—Jane Fonda, author of What Can I Do?
 
“In this warm, passionate and very personal book Alice Waters lays out a stunningly convincing case for changing the way we eat. No jargon, no big words, just Alice talking about all the things that matter most to her. I’m going to give this book to everyone I love.”
—Ruth Reichl, author of Save Me the Plums
 
“Alice Waters is my favorite chef, and
We Are What We Eat is a beautiful, important book. It’s full of passion, anger at the way things are, and hope for a kinder, fairer, more humane, and vastly more enjoyable future. This book is the culmination of a life’s work, a great life, and is a must read.” —Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation
 
“What Alice has contributed to the world is immeasurable, but this new book
We Are What We Eat covers new ground. Alice has dedicated her entire life to people, the planet, and the food we consume. Here, she teaches us that food has an intrinsic value that today's society takes for granted. Imagine what this world would look, smell, and taste like if more of us followed her lead.” —Ron Finley, The Gangsta Gardener

Alice Waters is the visionary chef and owner of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. She is the author of four cookbooks, including Chez Panisse Vegetables and Fanny at Chez Panisse. In 1994 she founded the Edible schoolyard at Berkeley's Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, a model curriculum that integrates organic gardening into academic classes and into the life of the school; it will soon incorporate a school lunch program in which students will prepare, serve, and share food they grow themselves, augmented by organic dairy products, grains, fruits, vegetables, meat, and fish - all locally and sustainably produced.
