Edible Education 101 - 2015 Course Details

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 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 four semesters since 2011.

The 2015 course is instruced by Garrison Sposito and co-hosted by Mark Bittman and Robert Haas.
