Alice May Brock of Alice's Restaurant movie and restaurant fame. After noting her new restaurant franchises in Los Angeles and elsewhere, Time magazine noted:
Alice, who got her start as a sous-chef in the kitchen of a girls' reformatory in Hawthorne, N.Y. ("I was a rotten kid"), dismisses international cuisine in four sentences. "Don't be intimidated by foreign cookery," she writes. "Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good."
