A pioneer in the farm-to-table movement and one of the originators of California cuisine, Alice Waters will visit San Diego's Chino Farm on February 25 for a special book signing and appearance for her memoir, Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook.

Alice Waters is a chef, restaurateur, activist and author who in 1971, when she was in her 20s, opened Chez Panisse - a Berkeley, California restaurant famous for its organic, locally grown ingredients and for pioneering California cuisine and starting the farm-to-table movement. Waters worked with First Lady Michelle Obama as a public policy advocate for school lunch reform and universal access to healthy, organic foods.

A fundraiser for Alice Water's The Edible Schoolyard Project, the Chino Farm appearance is free to attend, open to the public and will take place on Sunday, February 25 from 11am to 1pm, rain or shine. Pre-ordered books are highly recommended and can be ordered online and picked up at the event or during regular Chino Farm hours.
