Alice Waters, the seminal chef who pioneered the farm-to-table movement at her restaurant Chez Panisse, is launching her first-ever online cooking class.
Waters, who also founded the Edible Schoolyard Project, will teach home-cooking techniques (from her own home kitchen) and share her tips for finding and preparing the best-tasting organic ingredients in her MasterClass offering, which launches Friday.
The class will cover approachable recipes, kitchen skills, and ingredient-led meal planning. "I want you to know what food is really alive and seasonal," the James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef says in the trailer for the course (below). "This is the kind of food that nourishes the body and the soul."
"We cook at Chez Panisse like I cook at home," says Waters, 74. "We're trying to look at the food and not get in the way of the real taste of that food." (It's probably fair to say that there aren't many homes around the country where the food tastes as good as it does at the Berkeley, California restaurant that Waters opened in 1971, which has been ranked among the "World's 50 Best Restaurants.")
"It's about learning techniques, and once you learn them they become second-nature to you," Waters says.
