I have never been to Chez Panisse, as I live in the mountains a thousand miles away. But I have enjoyed Alice Waters' cookbooks, and found inspiration there. I like to make up my own menus for fancy dinner parties, but they are not on the same level of what Patricia does. This book has made me rethink the whole process, and dream of doing offset printing.
At the end she describes her process and shows some photos of work as it is progressed. I wish she would do a whole book just on this. It looks like such a labor of love. Very time consuming !
I can't imagine any cook, artist, printer or book lover not being thrilled with this. Renews my hope that all is not lost in our modern world.
