Publisher review:
When Alice Waters opened Chez Panisse in Berkeley in 1971, she envisioned the restaurant as a place where her friends could gather and exchange ideas around the table. Now, forty years later, Chez Panisse is a national treasure, where the food revolution was born, and from where new ideas and collaborations continue to emerge.
In 40 years of Chez Panisse, Alice leads readers on her journey, beyond the ingredients, from the humble and visionary beginnings of the restaurant to the story of its rise and acclaim around the world, and to the Chez Panisse Café, The Edible Schoolyard, and the Chez Panisse Foundation. She presents a wealth of archival material, including iconic photos and menus in their cultural and political context. By decade, she recounts stories and includes the voices of her friends – chefs, journalists, filmmakers, artists, academics, farmers, and others – celebrating the journey and reflecting on the transformative power of gathering around food.
This tribute to the delicious food revolution that began with Alice Waters and Chez Panisse is an exciting work for those who care about connecting food to culture and agriculture.

About the author:
Alice Waters
was born on April 28, 1944, in Chatam, New Jersey. She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 1967 with a degree in French cultural studies before training at the International Montessori School in London. Her daughter, Fanny, was born in 1983.Chez Panisse Restaurant opened in 1971, serving a single fixed-price menu that changed daily. The set menu format remains at the heart of Alice’s philosophy of serving the most delicious organic products only when they are in season. Over the course of four decades, Chez Panisse has developed a network of local farmers and ranchers whose dedication to sustainable agriculture assures Chez Panisse a steady supply of pure and fresh ingredients. The upstairs café at Chez Panisse opened in 1980 with an open kitchen, a wood-burning pizza oven, and an à la carte menu. Café Fanny, a stand-up café that serves breakfast and lunch, was opened a few miles away in 1984. In 1996, in celebration of the restaurant’s twenty-fifth anniversary, Alice created the Chez Panisse Foundation. The Edible Schoolyard at Berkeley’s Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School is the foundation’s primary beneficiary. She is author of:
- Chez Panisse cooking.
- Chez Panisse desserts.
- Chez Panisse menu cookbook.
- Chez Panisse pasta, pizza & calzone.
- Chez Panisse vegetables.
- Chez Panisse Café cookbook.
- Chez Panisse fruit.
