Stalking Alice Waters

As the Food Inc. panel ended, I pushed my way through the exiting crowd wondering, “where were all the annoying viewers who couldn’t wait to ask questions/network/touch the panelists???” Someone had to set the precedent.

I caught her as she was about to leave the stage, and was surprised to find my voice a little shaky. A line quickly formed around me. What does one say to Alice Waters???? I had a goal, and I was going to get it accomplished. Thanking her, I told her it was a life goal of mine to take a sabbatical and work at Chez Panisse (sabbatical from what, I haven’t figured out yet). “Sure,” she said, “Let me give you my card.” WAHOOOOOOOOO
