Where do great meals begin? Come to the Table brings you straight to the source of wonderful flavors, beauty, abundance, and pride of place--the small farms of California and the people who tend them season after season.
Alice Waters, the celebrated chef and food activist, introduces a remarkable group of resilient fresh-food artisans who are committed to keeping our food supply delicious, diverse, and safe--for humans and the planet.
Meet the folks down on the farm and learn firsthand about the back-to-the-future small-farm economy that's gaining strength across America.
Discover new tastes and memorable traditions. Explore local flavors, wit, and wisdom along with the universal values of a food system that is "good, clean, and fair." Recreate a range of sumptuous yet simple meals with the farmers' own family recipes--including breakfast crostata and fresh-fruit jams, stuffed artichokes and black-eyed peas, chile relleno casseroles, pulled pork, and cheesecake.
Sustainable food is real food. Come to the table, and help yourself!
