Edible Education: Alice Waters / Michael Pollan lecture series on the Food Movement, available to stream for free
As part of the celebration for Chez Panisse's 40th Anniversary, the Chez Panisse foundation is offering a free class at UC Berkeley on "The Rise and Future of the Food Movement."
Lecturers include Carlo Petrini, Marion Nestle, Eric Schlosser, Alice Waters, Michael Pollan, and others. For those who can't attend in person, they are posting videos of the class (quality is quite good).
Video of the first lecture (with Carlo Petrini) is here: http://www.youtube.com/user/UCBerkeley#p/l/0/Hr5receWm4A

Funny, but at the Borders Sales a few hours ago I picked up for about the 100th +/-time in my life Alice Waters' book.
I ate at Alice Waters' restaurant in Berkeley when it was in fashion in the 70's - There is a season for everything. Many seasons have passed and I'm still passing on her book. I must have a blockage.
