In "Forty Years of Chez Panisse: The Power of Gathering, " Alice takes readers on her journey from the humble and visionary beginnings of the restaurant, through its rise and the acclaim, to the CafE and the influential Chez Panisse Foundation. Organized by decade, the book includes a wealth of archival material and photographs--menus; invitations; pictures of Alice at the restaurant and around the world, with those who have passed through her life--and interviews from public figures and cooks who have been inspired by or mentored at the restaurant.
This tribute to the delicious food revolution that began with Alice Waters and Chez Panisse is an important work for anyone who cares about food, sustainability, and the powerful legacy that Alice has built.
