About this Event
HGP’s second event of Sustain in Place: A series of at-home tastings, features a keynote video presentation from Alice Waters. Few names in the farm to table movement are more recognizable than Alice and her influential restaurant, Chez Panisse.
Guests will also have the opportunity to pick up a gift bag of New Leaf’s private label Common Vines wine, bottled locally by Bargetto, delicious truffles from Mutari Chocolate and HGP’s own hand-dipped beeswax candles, in a reusable tote bag.
Alice Waters is one of the most influential American chefs since the 1970s. She is the founder of Chez Panisse, the original “California Cuisine” restaurant in Berkeley, California and is the author of 8 books that promote the importance of wholesale nutrition. Alice Waters has been a leading advocate of natural and organic foods, championing the importance of locally grown and fresh ingredients. Her Edible Schoolyard program has been integrated into the entire Berkeley school system and has attracted mainstream attention across the nation because of the crisis of childhood obesity. She has helped to reshape the conversation in America from corporate-controlled fast-foods back to the importance of wholesome foods as an important ingredient in creating a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. We are excited to present her keynote talk, recorded exclusively for this event.
Guests will be able to pick up bags from HGP’s Downtown Store anytime from 12pm to 6pm on Friday, October 30th and will be available through the weekend. The presentation will be online and be premiered at 6:30pm at a link sent exclusively to attendees, however you will have the chance to watch the presentation at your convenience any time after that.
The Sustain In Place series of at-home tastings are generously sponsored by New Leaf Community Markets, La Posta Restaurant and Mutari Chocolate.
