Alice Waters, owner of the restaurant Chez Panisse, is an American chef who is known for creating the “slow food” movement—which promotes the benefits of healthy, organic food to ordinary people. Narrator Laura Hamilton portrays her in a voice that sounds eager and child-friendly. She sounds keenly engaged with Alice’s travels, her love of enjoying fresh, delicious food with friends, and her desire to share that experience at home in the U.S. Hamilton sets a steady pace and pauses for emphasis, bringing scenes alive as Alice tastes radishes while visiting a farm and introduces schoolchildren to a freshly grown meal. The production concludes with an afterword by Waters and note from the author. A.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2014]
