James Beard says; "Chez Panisse is an extraordinary dining experience ...It is Alice Waters' brilliant gastronomic mind, her flair for cooking and her almost revolutionary concept of menu planning that makes Chez Panisse so exciting." Justly famed for the originality and surprise of its ever changing menu, the freshness and uncompromising quality of its ingredients, and the range and virtuosity of owner-chef Alice Waters.
Waters assembles 120 of Chez Panisse's inspired transformations of classic French dishes - compiled from the best meals served at Chez Panisse in the ten-plus years of its existence, including galas, festivals, and several special occasion meals. A full range of menus is featured, from picnics to informal suppers intended to awaken the senses and bring both diner and cook into more direct involvement with the flavors. The author's comments on her sources, methods, and philosophy reveal the sensuous, passionate soul of her celebrated cuisine.
