Alice Waters has been a champion of the sustainable, local cooking movement for decades. To Alice, good food is a right, not a privilege. In the Green Kitchen presents her essential cooking techniques to be learned by heart plus more than 50 recipes—for delicious fresh, local, and seasonal meals—from Alice and her friends. She demystifies the basics including steaming a vegetable, dressing a salad, simmering stock, filleting a fish, roasting a chicken, and making bread. An indispensable cookbook, she gives you everything you need to bring out the truest flavor that the best ingredients of the season have to offer.

ALICE WATERS's influence on American cooking is unrivaled. Inspired by the markets of France, Waters opened Chez Panisse (named Best Restaurant in America by Gourmet) in 1971, Chez Panisse Café in 1980, and Café Fanny in 1984. She founded her career on creating dishes using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients long before sustainability was en vogue. Alice has been awarded the Legion of Honor, the James Beard Best Chef in America Award, Humanitarian Award, and Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1996, she created the Chez Panisse Foundation to fund the Edible Schoolyard, a model of edible education in the public school system. She is the author of many cookbooks, most recently In the Green Kitchen and The Art of Simple Food. For more information about Chez Panisse, please visit ChezPanisse.com.
