"Fanny at Chez Panisse" by Alice Waters with Bob Carrau and Patricia Curtan. Illustrations in color by Ann Arnold. Published by Harpers Collins Publishers, copyright 1992, first edition.
Chez Panisse is a restaurant in Berkeley, California, run by Alice Waters and about a hundred of her friends. Her daughter Fanny's stories of this busy place are a friendly and funny introduction to the delights of real restaurant life, and her recipes show how easy and inexpensive it is to make good food with basic ingredients and simple techniques.
This is a book with a message about where good food really comes from - not just from the supermarket, but from farms and people who care about the earth. Along the way there are lessons such as the importance of eating with your hands, that garlic is as good as ten mothers, and how to turn kitchen scraps into compost.
Fanny at Chez Panisse is also a beginner's cookbook with delicious recipes that will charm kids and adults into the desire to cook and eat with whole hearts, alert minds and all their senses.
