About Edible Education 101  

The Edible Education 101 course was created in conjunction with the 40th-anniversary celebration of Chez Panisse Restaurant and Café in Berkeley, California. Alice Waters, founder of Chez Panisse and the Edible Schoolyard Project, launched the course in partnership with the University of California, Berkeley to bring edible education to the university level. The course, a unique hybrid public lecture series and for-credit class, has been offered to undergraduate students and members of the general public for five semesters since 2011.

The 2016 course is presented by UC Berkeley's College of Natural Resources and led by Mark Bittman. All lectures are free and open to the public. Registration opens one week prior to each lecture on Eventbrite. Contact EdibleEducation101@gmail.com with questions or press inquiries.
