In early 2009, Michelle Obama started working to get us re-focused on healthy eating. She brought back the White House garden with the goal of bringing homegrown food into the White House. This kind of garden was a dream of California chef Alice Waters.
Alice a leader in the movement to use locally grown organic foods.
She had discussed her idea for a White House garden with Mrs.Obama and she organized a Washington dinner before President Barack Obama’s inauguration that served foods bought from local producers at an area farmer’s market. Mrs. Obama and Ms. Waters made the headlines again yesterday.
We had a chance to meet with Alice Waters in her kitchen where we held a live WebEx with her in Berkeley! It was a terrific discussion and she even shared a quick recipe with us.

After our meeting, a member of our team wrote up a quick blog about the experience and told us what was happening behind the scenes.
