Now’s my chance. If I can make it to the Green City Farmers’ Market by 8 a.m. this Saturday, I might be able to meet Alice Waters. From Gapers Block:
Alice Waters will take marker-goers about Green City Market on a shopping trip to prepare for a fundraising lunch. Shopping with Alice from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., with a booksigning from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., proceeds benefiting Green City Market.
Whoa boy. Guess who’s going to be in the front of that line, copy of The Art of Simple Food in hand, and dressed to the nines in order to catch the eye of a certain 64-year-old? Take me back to California with you, Mrs. Waters. Take me.
Or I won’t go because that’s pretty early in the morning. More as (if) it develops.
it brings a tear to my eye to know that you would love to meet Alice Waters! why do i constantly find myself explaining to people who she is and why they owe her! people, come on! without her, you might never be eating bugs on fruit! I might sound a bit snarky right now, but I kid you not, you owe her for your gastronomic pleasures. she alone led us thru a culinary revolution.
i hope you do get up early and get in that line to meet her.
So did you get up? Did you meet Ms Waters? Was she impressive? Did you see the market through new eyes? It’s Thursday already and I need to know how this came out
I agree with DH. I need to hear a resolution. I feel so unsettled!
thought you should know, someone loves alice waters so much he got a tattoo of her on his arm. next up he’ll get james beard and julia child.
