Alice Louise Waters (born April 28, 1944) is an American chef, restaurateur, activist, and author. She is the owner of Chez Panisse, a Berkeley, California restaurant famous for its organic, locally-grown ingredients and for pioneering California cuisine.[2]
Waters opened the restaurant in 1971. It was consistently ranked among the World's 50 Best Restaurants from 2002 to 2008.[citation needed] Waters has been cited as one of the most influential figures in food in the past 50 years, and has been called the mother of American food.[3] She is currently one of the most visible supporters of the organic food movement, and has been a proponent of organics for over 40 years.[4] Waters believes that eating organic foods, free from herbicides and pesticides, is essential for both taste and the health of the environment and local communities.
