ALICE WATERS AND CHEZ PANISSE. The Roman Impractrical, Often Eccentric, Ultimately Brilliant Making of a Food Revolution

New York: Penguin Press, 2007. First edition. Hardcover. Foreword by R. W. Apple, Jr. This adventurous book charts the origins of the local "market cooking" culture that we all savor today. When Francophile Alice Waters opened Chez Panisse in Berkeley in 1971, few Americans were familiar with goat cheese, cappuccino, or mesclun. But it wasn't long before Waters and her motley coterie of dreamers inspired a new culinary standard incorporating ethics, politics, and the conviction that the best-grown food is also the tastiest. Based on unprecedented access to Waters and her inner circle, this is a truly delicious rags-to-riches saga. Illustrated from photographs. 380 pages with acknowledgments, index, interviews, and illustration credits. A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Item #15257
