From the PBS Web Site "Alice Waters, an old Berkeley, California hippie, rocked the international world of food in the late 1970s by preparing a simple lunch -- roasted garlic, grilled spring lamb, a salad of baby mixed greens and a perfect peach -- for an elite culinary gathering. Henri Charvet, the famous French chef sniffed, "Zhat is not cooking. Zhat is shopping!" Despite this opinion, Alice created a "delicious revolution." She and her now-famous Chez Panisse restaurant became a major force behind how Americans eat and think about food, launching the explosion of local farmer's markets and redesigned supermarket produce departments."
