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 is a unique hybrid: a public lecture series and a for-credit class for UC Berkeley students. The Edible Education series has been offered to undergraduate students and members of the general public since 2011.

2017 Course

The 2017 course is presented by UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and will be led by Will Rosenzweig and Alice Waters. Lectures will take place weekly, beginning January 18th, at the Haas School of Business’s Arthur Andersen Auditorium. All lectures are free and open to the public, but you must reserve a ticket to attend. Lectures will also be streamed live online.
