Language barriers didn’t play a part in the conversation between Chef Jose Andres and Alice Waters (founder of the Chez Panisse Restaurant and Cafe, the Edible Schoolyard and champion of the Slow Food movement) at The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery’s recent unveiling of a photographic portrait of food pioneer Alice Waters.
“I am delighted to install in our museum this portrait of Alice Waters created by Dave Woody,” said Martin E. Sullivan, director of the museum. “In this compelling photograph, Woody captures Alice Waters’ commitment to local, organic food. The Portrait Gallery recognizes Waters for changing the way the nation thinks about how people are connected to food and the environment. We expect the event to be a lively celebration of this relatively new conversation in American culture.”
