Alice Waters was born in Chatham, New Jersey, on April 28, 1944. She has been married twice, to French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Gorin, and then to Stephen Singer, an importer of Italian olive oil and Chez Panisse’s wine buyer. Her daughter, Fanny Singer, was born in 1983. Waters currently lives in Berkeley, California.In 1971, at the age of 27, Waters opened Chez Panisse. Realizing the difficulty in finding fresh, high-quality ingredients, she began building a network of local farmers, artisans, and producers, and continues to source the restaurant’s ingredients through her local network.This dedication to preparing only the best ingredients is the restaurant’s trademark, and played a large role in developing the style of “California cuisine.” Since 2002, Waters has served as a Vice President of Slow Food International, an organization dedicated to preserving local food traditions, protecting biodiversity, promoting small-scale quality products around the world. She is drawn to the Slow Food movement because of its work in passing food knowledge and traditions to future generations.
