Review

"40 years of gorgeous menus from the legendary Berkeley restaurant." --Sunset magazine

"....a nice surprise since i've admired the hand carved and printed designs of the famous berkeley restaurant for so long. the book is a collections of forty years of artwork by patricia curtain....would make [a] really nice gift for those interested in printing." --Lena Corwin

"Whether you're interested in letterpress and printmaking, Chez Panisse and Alice Waters, or food ephemera, you'll find something of value in this beautiful book." --Epicurious.com

"Some menus are now so iconic - radishes tied in a bundle, ripe figs still on the branch - that they evoke not only Chez Panisse but an entire era of food." -- T: The New York Times Magazine

"Menus for Chez Panisse awes.... a shockingly impressive and addictive tome.... we strongly recommend. Gorgeous stuff, folks." --SFist.com

I wonder if this book would be so absorbing for someone who hasn't been to Chez Panisse. Just like every carefully planned meal, the menus in this book are little works of art. And if you've eaten at Chez Panisse, as have I on only a few occasions, these beautifully rendered menus are little memory capsules. Reading through the book, the warm hustle and bustle of the restaurant come back to life, along with the smells and lovely fabric of the place. It is a pleasure to offer a positive review of the book, but I'd also recommend a visit to the restaurant if you're ever in Berkeley at lunch or, better yet, dinner.

I read about this book in David Lebowitz's blog, and immediately ordered a copy for myself since I'm interested in food, graphics, letter press printing, and for that matter, all things done well. An elegant, tasty book, with very high production values, and what a great gift for birthdays or holidays, no more struggling to come up with a surprise for that special friend ... or yourself.

Beautifully crafted and designed book that chronicles the wonderful union of the visual arts with the art of food. Kudos for Chez Panisse's support of the arts. Also nice to see now the art of Patricia Curtan has evolved over the years.

This book had such beautiful linoleum prints that it made me want to take it up as a hobby. And the menus are simple and elegant. So it is good for getting ideas for dinner parties, as well as seeing how graphic design makes a huge difference in presenting material.

One of Chez Panisse's beautiful books! It's more of an art book than a cook book. A must-have book to display in your kitchen!
