Alice Waters Book Signing
Monticello Museum Shop
Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center
Thursday, April 19th from 3-4pm.

Internationally known chef and author Alice Waters visits Monticello and will hold a public book signing at the Monticello Museum Shop, Thursday, April 19, starting at 3 p.m.

Waters is an American pioneer of a culinary philosophy that maintains that cooking should be based on the finest and freshest seasonal ingredients that are produced sustainably and locally. She is a passionate advocate for a food economy that is “good, clean, and fair.” Over the course of nearly forty years, her restaurant, Chez Panisse, has helped create a community of scores of local farmers and ranchers whose dedication to sustainable agriculture assures the restaurant a steady supply of fresh and pure ingredients.

Waters has also authored the foreword of Peter Hatch’s “A Rich Spot of Earth” Thomas Jefferson’s Revolutionary Garden at Monticello.

The book signing event is free and open to the public. The Monticello Museum Shop will be selling the following books by Alice Waters:

• 40 Years of Chez Panisse: The Power of Gathering
• In the Green Kitchen
• The Art of Simple Food
• Edible Schoolyard
