Note from the Editor: Every Tuesday, TFT HK will bring you a post or article from/about one of our local or global food heroes. These are people who inspire us, and whose visions align with the values that TFT espouses and promotes. This week's post is a reprint of a November 2011 article from the LA Times, detailing sustainable dining pioneer Alice Waters' experience catering a banquet in Beijing for the US-China Forum on the Arts and Culture. Waters is the owner of Chez Panisse (established in in Berkeley California in 1971, Chez Panisse is often listed as one of the best restaurants in the US), the founder of the Chez Panisse Foundation (a foundation that creates programs like The Edible Schoolyard Project, which teaches children about the importance of supporting local, sustainable agriculture, and engages them in the process of growing their own food), an author, and one of the world's foremost food activists. Alice, we at TFT HK salute you!
