LOVED the first book in the series and ready to read what happens next.

I picked up Eat Pretty Live Well: A Guided Journal for Nourishing Beauty, Inside and Out to get a handle on my world of food.

And, to prepare for the future, I got I'm Dead, Now What.

AND watched: online

Alice Waters and Her Delicious Revolution (2003)
American Masters series, episode 4
Director/Writer: Doug Hamilton
-Documentary, Biography | imdb | my rating: 5

Follow Alice Waters through a year of shopping and cooking, and discover the vision of an artist and advocate, who has taken her gift for food and turned it into consciousness about the environment, nutrition and a device for social change. -PBS

GOT me thinking of visiting restaurants that are farm to table oriented.
