Week 1 | January 22, 2020
Alice Waters & Bryant Terry
Slow Food Values and the Vegetable Kingdom

Please join Alice Waters and Will Rosenzweig with special guest, Chef Bryant Terry, for the first meeting of Edible Education 101 Spring 2020. Class meets at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business in the Anderson Auditorium on Wednesday, January 22 from 6:15pm - 8:00pm Pacific Time.
This class will also celebrate the publication of Bryant’s new book: Vegetable Kingdom.

Alice Waters has been the standard-bearer of a global food-movement that has brought organic, healthy food back to a convivial dining table for nearly fifty years. At the heart of her work has been a set of defining values that have guided her approach, choices and perspective. In this conversation with her long-time farming collaborator, she shares her thoughts and visions for the future of food.

Bryant Terry is a James Beard Award-winning chef, educator, and author renowned for his activism to create a healthy, just, and sustainable food system. He is currently in his fifth year as Chef-in-Residence at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco where he creates programming that celebrates the intersection of food, farming, health, activism, art, culture, and the African Diaspora. His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, and All Things Considered among many other publications.

Let’s change the world with great tasting food!
