At the same time, well be hosting a signing with Andrew R. Ruis, Researcher at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research and Fellow at Department of Surgery. His book, Eating to Learn, Learning to Eat: The Origins of School Lunch in the United States, explores the origins of American school meal initiatives to explain why it has been so difficult to establish meal programs that satisfy the often competing interests of children, parents, schools, health authorities, politicians, and the food industry.
Here's more about Waters. When Alice Waters opened the doors of her little French restaurant in Berkeley, California, in 1971 at the age of 27, no one ever anticipated the indelible mark it would leave on the culinary landscape, Alice least of all. Fueled in equal parts by naiveté and a relentless pursuit of beauty and pure flavor, she turned her passion project into an iconic institution that redefined American cuisine for generations of chefs and food lovers.
Moving from a repressive suburban upbringing to Berkeley in 1964 at the height of the Free Speech Movement and campus unrest, Waters was drawn into a bohemian circle of charismatic (and mostly male) figures whose views on design, politics, film, and food would ultimately inform the unique culture on which her restaurant, Chez Panisse, was founded.
Waters is coming as part of a special event at N Studios at the Pabst Brewery Complex, starting at 4 pm on Saturday, April 20. Shell be in conversation with Ron Finley and Milwaukees Will Allen. This event is presented by Groundwork Milwaukee and Slow Food WiSE, Ticket information available soon.
