The Lettuce That Ate New York—and the World: Part II

by Isaac Cronin

Read Part I here.

By the time I got around to contacting Andrea Crawford early in 1987, she was working with the cream of the new second wave of Los Angeles restaurants (the first wave—La Toque and Ma Maison—having closed; Michael’s was still open), and the ones she didn’t supply wanted her product. 1,639 more words

A night with The Edible Schoolyard Project

Modern life can feel crazy busy – as every youth activity demands more time commitment at younger ages – at the same time that work demands on parents have increased a lot since our parents’ generation.   442 more words

A Table for Everyone

In a way I’d love to frequent a place often enough that I’d be known, if not by name, perhaps by where I liked to sit or what I ordered. 236 more words

從廚房飄香到校園的飲食教育

本文摘要:來自義大利慢食博覽會的現場報導,愛麗絲華特斯(Alice Waters)傑米奧利佛(Jamie Oliver)和卡羅派屈尼(Carol Petrini)經驗分享,飲食教育是打破飲食惡性循環、讓我們找回食物自主權最迫切的關鍵。

有沒有一堂課程,蚯蚓和蜜蜂是同學

有沒有一間教室,大地和種子是老師

有沒有一門學問,健康和踏實是文憑…

愛麗絲華特斯(Alice Waters)傑米奧利佛(Jamie Oliver)和卡羅派屈尼(Carol Petrini)三位分別在美、英、義三國發起食物運動、推動校園飲食教育改革的焦點人物在慢食的博覽會齊聚一堂,他們用各自的經驗讓世界看見,面對現代社會日漸崩解的食物系統,教育是打破飲食惡性循環、讓我們找回食物自主權最迫切的關鍵。

美國有機運動的溫柔力量

愛麗絲是美國北加州潘尼斯之家(Chez Panisse)餐廳的主廚與創辦人,也是帶動美國近10多年來有機及在地飲食風潮的關鍵人物,加州現在有全美最多的農夫市集和產地到餐桌(Farm to Table)餐廳,愛麗絲功不可沒。

她在1995年開始從餐廳所在的社區推動「可食校園計畫(The Editable Schoolyard)」,自掏腰包在經費窘困的公立小學開闢校園菜圃,讓學生自己種菜並學習自己烹煮,從而發展出一系列的教師、學童及志工輔導計畫,影響數萬加州學童的校園課程及午餐菜單,甚至啟發美國第一夫人蜜雪兒在自家後院開闢白宮第一個有機菜園。

她從經驗中發現,推動飲食教育最難說服的障礙往往不是孩子,是做決策的大人,她的竅門就是邀請特別頑固的老師到她開的餐廳用餐,讓美味又健康食物自己替自己發聲,她笑說或許是餐廳太好吃,不知不覺就有越來越多學校願意參與了。

愛麗絲是一位外表看似柔弱內在卻無比堅韌的女性,連卡羅都忍不住開玩笑,千萬不要小看這個看起來很瘦弱的女漢子,她可強悍的呢!愛麗絲溫柔卻嚴肅的指出,高度工業化社會中,我們一直不斷追求快速、低價與便利(fast, cheap and easy),直接反映在食物上的就是速食,長久下來人類反被自己所追求的便利囚禁,生活、飲食和背後傳承的文化價值都顯得平淡如水。她也再次呼籲現場觀眾「提供兒童真正健康的食物是我們每個人的道德義務」接下來愛麗絲會進一步推動提高美國校園午餐的預算,將校園午餐改革計畫從加州擴展到全美。

The Lettuce That Ate New York—and the World: Part I

by Isaac Cronin

Walking toward me, a towheaded two-year-old cherub boy balanced on her hip, was a tall, angular blonde woman wearing a nautical, blue-striped long sleeve T-shirt, khaki shorts, a floppy straw sun hat and rubber boots … the quintessential French California mash-up look. 1,019 more words
