Alice Waters's Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California, sparked a movement toward simple, elegant cooking using fresh, seasonal, regional ingredients. In Chez Panisse Cooking,
Chef Paul Bertolli collaborates with Waters to adapt many of the restaurant's trademark recipes for home cooking. Look here for fresh, innovative salads, soothing soups, and delightful desserts. Waters's fondness for exotic vegetables and greens may have you searching a little harder in the grocery store, but the results will make your efforts worthwhile.
From Library Journal
Another winner from Chez Panisse, this one by the restaurant's long-time chef. Bertolli's lively, creative recipes serve as starting points for fascinating essays on a diversity of topics, from collecting wild mushrooms in Italy to the science of bread making to the qualities of the best ice cream. Techniques as difficult as making puff pastry are presented clearly enough for even the most inexperienced reader. The recipes themselves will appeal to both the novice and the intrepid, knowledgeable cook. Highly recommended. JS
