Alice Waters has been called the mother of American food. Her restaurant, Chez Panisse, open in Berkeley since 1971, has been said to have pioneered Californian cuisine. As a supporter of organics for the past forty years, she has had a great influence on the local area and its focus on organic, local produce.

Chez Panisse was consistently ranked amongst the World's 50 Best Restaurants from 2002 - 2008, and Waters is said to have been one of the most influential players in the food scene of the past 50 years.
