In this book, Alice Waters, famous owner/chef /author of the Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkley, California describes how her experiences both in food and in the Montessori teaching method resulted in her championing a project to integrate food into the core academic teaching lessons at the Martin Luther King Junior middle school, located a few blocks from her restaurant. The project has incorporated the core belief that the environment created for children communicates that they are cared for and that ‘learning by doing’ is the most effective and stimulating teaching technique.

Teacher, community and student involvement have successfully developed an evolving ‘ hands on’ experience in the garden – integrating the school garden, kitchen and cafeteria into the core teaching curriculum and ensuring all students receive a healthy lunch.
