Alice Waters is coming! Alice Waters is coming! The blockbuster doyenne of Chez Panisse (not to mention patron saint of any movement involving the words “local,” “sustainable,” “fresh,” and “slow”) will be in town to put together an Obama fundraising dinner. Politics makes us yawn, but hello: she’ll be at the Green City Market on Saturday from 8am on, and signing her latest book from 9 to 11.
We can’t wait to read what Fruit Slinger will have to say about her. You will be there, won’t you Dan?

(We wanted to illustrate this post with a photo of Chef Nino Mancari’s tattoo of Alice Waters, but it belongs to The New York Times and we don’t want to get sued. So we strongly advise you to go to this gallery and check out these awesome chef tattoos.)
