Alice Waters and Gavin Newsom in Conversation

newsom-waters.jpgEarlier this week, the San Francisco Public Library hosted a conversation between San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and Alice Waters about food, food choices, food education, and how food choices reflect–and reinforce–social and political values as part of its City Speaks series. They also discussed the Edible Schoolyard, Slow Food Nation, and other Slow Food events and programs such as the biannual Terra Madre gathering.

The City of San Francisco has made a video of the conversation available on their SFGTV website. Thanks to the team at The Ethicurean for alerting us to the availability of the video and for their summary of the conversation.
