Shriver, Fieri and Alice Waters unveil a WE garden

The Sacramento Bee reports that California First Lady Maria Shriver will unveil the WE Garden in Capitol Park in Sacramento this Thursday morning, May 21, 2009.
Dubbed "WE Garden in Capitol Park," the 800-square-foot project is designed to inspire schoolchildren to learn about food and nutrition as well as agriculture.
Alice Waters and Guy Fieri will join Shriver for the dedication Thursday morning. The event also will feature a food fair with free samples, cooking demonstrations and healthy recipes.

Alice Waters is an American chef and co-owner of Chez Panisse, the original "California Cuisine" restaurant in Berkeley, California. She champions locally-grown and fresh ingredients and has been credited with creating and developing California Cuisine. Waters has written or co-written several books on the subject, including the influential Chez Panisse Cooking (written with then-chef Paul Bertolli).

And finally, I have a reason to poke a little fun back at Food Network Humor for their 6 Food Network Calendars No One Would Ever Purchase ... all in good fun!!

Do you think the calendar would sell if it had pictures of Maria Shriver and recipes from Guy and Alice Waters?
