Alice Waters' Edible Schoolyard Dines at Craft

The chef co-hosts fundraising dinner with John Lyons, Fernanda Niven, Jonathen Sheffer, Brett Williams and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Alice Waters held her second fundraising dinner for her Edible Schoolyard organization at Craft on Wednesday night, with the help of co-hosts John Lyons, Fernanda Niven, Jonathen Sheffer, Brett Williams and Jake Gyllenhaal. It turns out the actor is a voracious chef: he most recently whipped up a veal stew. "I love to read cookbooks and I subscribe to a lot of cooking magazines. I scour the internet for interesting recipes," said Gyllenhaal, who shops for the local and seasonal. "There's a [food] co-op at my niece's [Ramona, daughter of Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard] school," he said. "We get a lot of stuff from there."
