Jennifer Wolcott en Giving Back: A Harvest Dinner <p>Alice Waters is not often speechless. The woman who has been at the forefront of the local food revolution, founded one of the country’s most celebrated restaurants (Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California) and who has brought gardens into schoolyards across the country typically has a lot to say—especially when discussing her passion for all that is fresh, local and seasonal. But on an autumn morning in Concord, Massachusetts, Alice Waters is so moved by what she sees that she can hardly find her words.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Jennifer Wolcott </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not far from where the Pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving, Alice Waters visits a farm that shares the harvest in an unusual way. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-standard"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_standard" width="310" height="310" alt="" src="" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-publication"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> November/December 2009 </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle1"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Related Recipes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/brined_roast_turkey.html">Brine-Cured Roast Turkey</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes/roast_squash_garlic_parsley.html">Oven-Roasted Squash with Garlic &amp; Parsley</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/brussels_sprouts_bacon_onions.html">Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon &amp; Onions</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes/wild_mushroom_stuffing.html">Wild Mushroom Stuffing</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/cranberry_upside_down_cake.html">Cranberry Upside-Down Cake</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/thanksgiving_collection_1">Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes, Menus and Cooking Tips</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle2"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> More on Thanksgiving </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks2"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/wine_beer_spirits_guide/a_wine_for_every_thanksgiving_dish">A Wine for Every Thanksgiving Dish</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101/shopping_cooking_guides/healthy_thanksgiving_guide">Healthy Thanksgiving Guide</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/holidays_occasions/easy_healthy_thanksgiving_menu_and_planner">Easy, Healthy Thanksgiving Menu and Planner</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/holiday_entertaining/nell_newmans_organic_thanksgiving">Nell Newman&#039;s Organic Thanksgiving</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101/shopping_cooking_guides/turkey_buyers_guide">Turkey Buyer&#039;s Guide</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_fall_recipes">Healthy Fall Recipes and Menus</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> Jennifer Wolcott November/December 2009 Food News & Origins - Seasonal & Local Wed, 07 Oct 2009 20:07:04 +0000 Nifer 15036 at
